Advanced Placement Program
Canada Star Secondary School is launching after-class AP courses in the Fall Semester of 2020
What is AP?
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both — while still in high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam can typically earn students college credit and/or placement into advanced courses in college.
AP enables you to:
✔ Stand out in college admission
✔ Earn college credit
✔ Skip introductory college classes
✔ Save money on tuition
✔ Build college skills and confidence
✔ Explore potential majors based on your interests
✔ Turn subjects you love into fulfilling career paths
Research consistently shows that AP students are better prepared for college than students who don’t take AP. They’re more likely to enroll and stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate in four years.
