A Pre AP course is focused, connected, collaborative and challenging. PreAP students are excited about the subject and interested in developing their understanding of the basic concepts of a course so that they can test their knowledge, and apply it in new ways thereby adding depth to their learning.
Pre AP presents an opportunity for students to work collaboratively and create connections through their focused learning. Although these students may not earn top marks in their subject area, they possess an intrinsic interest and enthusiasm for the subject area.
Do I Have to take Pre-AP to do AP 12 courses?
Do I have to take Pre-AP 10 to get into Pre-AP11?
No, but students already enrolled in Pre – AP and who are successful will take precedence in cases where the class is full.
Do AP students skip first year courses at university?
A score of 3.5 or higher on the AP test written in Grade 12 can earn university credit. Most AP students choose instead to take unassigned credits toward their degree program.
Does that mean that AP students are saving money?
Yes! Each AP course equals 1/5 of a semester of university in credit – which is like getting a scholarship for taking an AP course.
