Advanced Placement Program
High school students at the American Community School have a unique opportunity to challenge themselves by enrolling in Advanced Placement (AP) courses as part of their high school program. Students taking AP courses may earn college credit while in high school and stand out in the college admission process, giving them an advantage in receiving an acceptance from their preferred college choice. These rigorous courses also show college admissions officers that your child is mature and intellectually ready for college.
AP courses are recognized by over 3,600 colleges and universities in the US and abroad; in fact, over 90% of 4-year colleges in the U.S. provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying scores, giving your child the opportunity to move into upper-level courses as a college freshman.
At ACS, we offer 15 different AP courses, giving students the chance to conquer more difficult material in their subjects of interest.
AP International University Recognition
Over 60 countries around the world recognize AP scores when considering students for admission and count AP credits earned for enrollment.
