Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives students an opportunity to take college-level courses and exams while they are still in high school. Through AP, they can earn credit, advanced placement, or both for college.  Anderson Community School Corporation offers eleven (11) AP courses for academically talented students. Advanced Placement courses may be used to satisfy credit requirements for the Academic Honors or Technical Honors Diploma. All Advanced Placement classes earn honors weight for computation of grade point averages (GPA). Each course will follow the Advanced Placement curriculum established by the College Board. All students who enroll in an Advanced Placement (AP) course must take The College Board AP exam to meet AP requirements for Academic Honors and Technical Honors Diplomas. Anderson High School requires every student enrolled in an Advanced Placement Course to take The College Board AP exam.
