  • AP is a prestigious international program administered by the College Board, headquartered in Princeton, NJ. Students may sit for AP exams in the U.S. or 55 countries around the world.
  • The College Board must approve the course syllabus, sequence, and textbook for any course labeled AP. Three SUA teachers are readers of AP exams each summer which allows them to meet with test creators and evaluate actual student exams.
  • The curriculum in an AP class is equivalent to at least a first-year college course (i.e., AP Calc AB = Calc I at a university).
  • Studies have shown a direct relationship between a student's high school program that includes AP classes and success in college.
  • The rigor of AP courses is recognized by over 3,000 universities and can be a positive factor in the college acceptance process.
  • A passing grade on an AP exam is a three, four, or five. All state colleges in Ohio must accept a 3 or higher for college credit. Therefore, if a student takes six to eight AP courses in high school, she could earn 18 to 24 hours of college credit. This could be a real savings in tuition, books, room and board!
  • AP classes are open to all students who meet prerequisites established by SUA. In 2014 - 2015, 190 different students are enrolled in AP classes, filling nearly 360 seats. Typically, 80% of SUA's AP students will take at least one AP exam and over 70% of test-takers will earn a passing score (with that percentage reaching over 80% in 2014).
