Advanced Placement

What is Advanced Placement (AP)?

The Advanced Placement Program is an opportunity for students to pursue college-level studies while still in secondary school and to receive high school and college credit. By challenging and stimulating students, the AP Program provides access to high-quality education, accelerates learning, rewards achievement, and enhances both high school and college programs.

The AP Program at IRCHS is beginning its fifteenth year. All students who take an AP course are required to take the AP exam. All courses are authorized by the CollegeBoard.
