What is Advanced Placement?

Advanced Placement is an international program administered by the College Board, the same organization that is in charge of SAT testing.  An Advanced Placement examination credit is an internationally-recognized first-year university credit.  

AP offers the unique opportunity for motivated students to tailor their academic choices to their interests and strengths. Advanced Placement courses allow students to explore more deeply specifically in the subject areas that interest them, without tying them to doing so in all subjects. The AP Program, which was founded in 1955, gives students the opportunity to study university-level content within the secondary school  setting, and is recognized by  universities  worldwide. 

Students who score well on the May examinations are granted credit by most universities in North America. Examinations are graded in the United States on a five-point scale.

Why Take Advanced Placement Courses?

Would you like your motivated and capable child to accumulate one, two, or even more university credits while in high school?

Former Earl of March AP Students Say:
"The AP courses at Earl of March offer students unparalleled preparation for post-secondary education. The advanced placement classes that I took at Earl enriched my studies and exposed me to subjects and ideas that other students never covered. The study habits and writing skills that I developed in the AP stream made my transition from high school to university far less daunting than it was for many of my peers."
-Benet Gladwin, class of 2012
"My three AP credits have allowed me to limit my schedule to four classes for the final three semesters of my degree, which lets me focus on fewer courses while having more time for extra-curricular activities."
-Benet Gladwin, class of 2012
