Advanced Placement®

Advanced Placement®

The Advanced Placement®(AP®) program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools, colleges and universities. The AP® program supplements Alberta courses for Grades 11-12 students seeking further academic challenge. Successful AP® exam completion positions them to qualify for credit transfer or advanced placement at many universities. Selected students may have the opportunity to write Advanced Placement® exams in May each year whether they have taken the instruction provided by the School or not. For more information about the Advanced Placement® program, please visit
