Advanced Placement

CollegeBoard - Advanced Placement Program

The Advanced Placement Program, administered by The College Board and taught in high schools, allows students to participate in a college-level course of study, and to show mastery in college-level courses through an end-of-course exam. All courses are taught as part of the normal curriculum by Boone faculty and can lead to earning college credit while still in high school. Secondary schools and most major colleges cooperate in this program.


This growing program is an outstanding opportunity for qualified students to get a head start on college skills in a controlled classroom environment. Research shows that students completing one AP course are 40% more likely to graduate from college in four years. Taking two courses increases that probability to 60%!
