AP Courses

We encourage students to take a rigorous schedule of classes by including AP and PreAP courses in order to be best prepared for the rigor of college. However, it is important to have a “balance” of academic courses. AP and PreAP courses take considerable time outside the classroom (most over 3 hours per week); and thus, students who are involved in extracurricular activities that require numerous hours outside of the school day should give careful consideration to the number of the AP and PreAP courses for which they contract.

Remember, most AP and PreAP courses have summer homework and it is the responsibility of the student to know if his/her selected course requires any summer work AND  to complete required work by the first day of classes.
