The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is an internationally recognized program that fosters success in higher education by encouraging students to develop critical thinking skills at the highest level.
Students pursue university level studies while still in high school by preparing for and writing exams. Successful completion of exams earns students advanced placement and/or credit in university. Exams are recognized by universities throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.

Students who use AP exams for credit, save the tuition for that credit and have more time to focus on other courses if they choose.
AP marks are entered on a separate transcript by the College Board and are only sent to universities at the student’s discretion. Students can choose to forward AP marks for credit, delete AP marks from their transcript or even re-do AP exams if they are still in high school.
