Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement Program is a way for schools to provide their students with courses of study appropriate to their abilities and interests.

Many colleges and universities offer credit for AP Exam scores.R-7 high schools offer several AP courses to juniors and seniors. All AP courses culminate in the comprehensive AP examination administered by the College Board, a non-profit organization that administers the program. Most colleges will accept successful completion of the exam for either advanced placement alone or for both dual credit and advanced placement. Up-to-date information concerning university recognition policies can be found at College Board

Students enrolled in AP courses are required to take and pay for the corresponding examination to receive the 1.0 weighted credit. Financial assistance is available for students who qualify. See AP coordinator for more information.

Failure to take the AP examination will result in a reduction of weighted credit (from 1.0 to .666) for both the junior and senior courses.

Below is a list of AP courses which may be offered by our schools:

  • AP Physics
  • AP Computer Science
  • AP Computer Science Principals
