Advanced Placement

 
 
 

 

 
 
 

The Advanced Placement program is now firmly rooted in the course landscape at Marshall McLuhan .  Vertical teams in the English, Science, Math, and French departments now are working to make clear and direct links between the knowledge and skills​ presented in the junior years to the AP exam demands and expectations at the senior level.  The Art and History departments are in their early stages of engagement but are committed at the junior levels to develop important skill sets that will help to continue to build the AP program possibilities. Students are also encouraged to pursue individual passions

 

 

 

​Ultimately, the Advanced​ Placement program, or AP as it has come to be labelled, provides additional opportunities to enrich and challenge the students’ critical thinking and time management skills while they interact with academic peers who are determined to be well-prepared for university.  In May, the grade eleven and twelve AP courses will be writing the following exams:  English Language and Composition; English Literature and Composition; Chemistry; French. For those student candidates who score a 4 or a 5 on the exams, they will be granted a university credit.  


 In our pilot years, students have obtained University credits in English Language and Composition; English Literature and Composition; Calculus; Chemistry; French; Spanish.  

 


​The Advanced Placement Program is thriving at Marshall McLuhan.  We are looking forward to its expansion and hope that your son or daughter will be selected to participate in this academic opportunity.
