The Advanced Placement (AP) Program
The Advanced Placement (AP) Program at Senator O’Connor College School provides an enriched classroom setting for highly motivated students in the areas of English, Math, Science, French and Geography. The program begins in Grade 9 with segregated Pre-AP classes in which students study both the Ontario and the AP curriculum and leads to AP classes in Grades 11 and 12 that prepare students to write AP exams for advanced placement or credit in university. The AP Program is also an excellent enrichment opportunity for students in the French Extended/ Immersion Program as well as for students who are identified Gifted. All strong academic students are encouraged to apply.
The flexibility of the AP Program allows students to select the number of AP classes that suit their learning needs. The AP Program at Senator O'Connor allows students to choose as few as one AP class, or the full complement of AP courses offered at the school in order to work towards the AP International Diploma which is recognized world-wide.
Senator O'Connor College School will accept a limited number of students into the Grade 9 AP Program. Places of admission will be granted based on previous report cards, CAT 3 scores, principal/teacher's confidential reports, as well as the student's desire to commit to the level of study required by the enriched classroom setting.
