Advanced Placement Program
Advanced Placement Courses, or AP, are college-level courses that a student can take during high school. Most four-year colleges in the United States, and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, students will have more time to move into upper level courses or pursue a double-major. They also help students acquire the skills and habits they will need to be successful in college, such as improvement of writing skills, problem-solving abilities, and time management skills, discipline, and study habits. These tests are given every spring by CollegeBoard, there is no maximum or minimum number a student is required to take. When students take these courses with CVCS they will be given the skills they need to pass this test and earn college credit. All AP courses have passed the stringent requirements of the recent AP audit.
