Advanced Placement (AP)
     Welcome to the Advanced Placement program at A.C. Flora! The Advanced Placement Program is a national academic resource aimed at giving students the chance to achieve college credit while still in high school. Students in AP Courses undertake a rigorous program of study in the subject matter of the class. Then at the end of the school year they take a comprehensive exam prepared by the College Board. The exam is then shipped to the College Board for grading on a 1 to 5 point scale with 1 being the lowest score and 5 being the highest. Many colleges and universities will award some college credit for a score of 3 or higher on one of these exams while others require a 4 or higher before credit is awarded. Regardless of whether the student actually obtains college credit, the AP experience is valuable both for college admissions and college success.        We invite you to learn more about A.C.
