Advanced Placement is a set of rigorous courses taught on the college level. This curriculum challenges students and prepares them for future success in college and in life. Some benefits of being in AP classes are the opportunity to obtain college credit with the passing of the AP exam, preparation for the expectations of college level classes, notable attention from college admissions process, saving time and money in the future college expenses, and increasing self esteem and discipline. Research shows that students who attempt at least one AP class during high school have a greater chance of obtaining a bachelor’s degree and going on to further their degree.
Here in Lowndes County we are expanding our Advanced Placement program to prepare our students for success. All of our AP teachers are trained and certified by Collegeboard. Each course’s syllabus meets national and state AP standards.
