AP Program & AP Exams

  • The AP Program offers college-level courses that you can take in high school, and ultimately earn college credit. AP classes at Central High prepare students to take the AP exam at the end of the school year. Students have the opportunity to take the AP exam that corresponds with an AP course in May - AP Exams are completely optional. Students opt to take AP exams because if they earn a qualifying score, students can earn college credit or placement. AP Credit Policy Search
