Advanced Placement

Our Advanced Placement courses challenge ambitious students with university-level education anywhere in the world, accelerating them to college and career success.

What are AP courses?

Advanced Placement® (AP) courses are based on national curricula and prepare high school students to take the College Board® AP exams in May.

They provide an additional challenge for students wishing to learn more about a specific subject area. Classes are taught at the level and expectations of a first-year university course.

Our AP courses blend self-initiated study with live, in-person teaching online. Students progress through our rigorous online curriculum independently, with input from their teachers as and when it’s needed. This important self-initiated study is also complemented by several hours of virtual, instructor-guided sessions each week—where together they explore ideas, discuss questions, and overcome challenges together.

Students complete 18 weeks of instruction within 20-week semesters as shown in our calendar.

Grade 10–12 students wishing to enroll in AP courses need a recommendation from their principal (or designated school representative).

Due to the rigorous AP requirements, students may enroll in no more than three AP courses at the same time, unless we and the student’s primary school are happy to grant special approval. When a student is involved in athletics or another extracurricular activity requiring time and commitment, he or she should consider enrolling in fewer than three.
