AP Program

What is AP?

The AP Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school. Taking AP courses in IAS could give you an advantage in college by letting you:

  • Earn College Credit Your AP score could earn you college credits before you even set foot on campus.
  • Earn Advanced Placement Your AP score can let you skip introductory courses in college.
  • Save Money and Time Earning credit or placement can open up time on your schedule or even let you graduate early.
  • Stand Out to Colleges “AP” on your high school transcript shows colleges you’ve tackled college-level work.
