ADVANCED PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Image
Advanced Placement (AP) courses provide rigorous and challenging studies for highly able and potentially high-achieving students who are capable or motivated to pursue rigorous and challenging instruction. Students may enroll in individual AP courses and not in an advanced or Signature Program as a whole.

CURRICULUM

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at many high schools in Stafford County in order to provide highly motivated students the opportunity to study at the college level. AP courses and teachers are approved by the College Board. Teachers of AP courses are required to develop and submit a course syllabus to the College Board. Course offerings vary at each school depending on demand and teachers. AP courses require extensive reading, writing, and lab assignments, as well as the completion of summer work. Students who wish to take an AP course will need to discuss AP enrollment criteria with their high school counselors. Students taking Advanced Placement classes are expected to stay in the course during the entire school year and are to take the AP exam in May. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent to pay the exam fee by the appropriate date. Students who score high enough on the AP exam may earn college credit. Each college or university determines their own policies on acceptance of AP credits. More information on the Advanced Placement Program is available at:
