Advanced Placement Courses

AP Classes are high-level, quality courses in a variety of subjects. The program is administered through the College Board to offer high school course descriptions equated to college courses and correlated to AP examinations in specific subjects.
CHAMPS provides AP courses as part of their curriculum for eligible students. Based on the composite scores on an AP test, which range from 0 to 5, a college may award college credit or advanced placement to a participating student.
A score of a [4] or [5] on the AP test is usually required by colleges for credit or advanced placement in college courses. A [3] is sometimes acceptable in foreign languages and some other subject areas. Some colleges limit the number of AP credits that they will recognize.
