Alton High School AP Courses/AP Testing
What is AP?
The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between high schools and colleges, and is based on the principle that many students are capable of completing college level studies in secondary school. The majority of US high schools participate in the AP program, and more than a thousand colleges grant advanced standing and/or credits to students presenting satisfactory examination grades. The exams consist of multiple choice questions, free-response, and oral response. These tests are optional for the student and therefore it is the student's responsibility to register and pay the fee associated with the exams.
