The College Board’s AP Program 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. Through AP courses in 38 subjects, each culminating in a rigorous exam, students learn to examine texts, interpret data, evaluate evidence, construct solid arguments and see multiple sides of an issue — skills and knowledge that prepare them for college and beyond.
