Advanced Placement Program Info
Courses offered through the College Board's Advanced Placement program enable students to pursue college level coursework while still in high school. Based on participation in courses and AP Exam performance, students can gain college admission, earn scholarship awards, earn credit toward a college degree, skip introductory college classes, enter higher-level clases, and/or fulfill general college educational requirements, depending on the college or university.-Excerpt from EMS ISD Course Description Handbook
