GRACE's Advanced Placement© Program
We're pleased to offer two Advanced Placement (AP) classes to our seniors: AP Literature and Composition and AP Government. The AP Program is sponsored by the College Board, and enables our students to take college-level courses and exams and gives them the opportunity to earn college credit, placement, or both. Most colleges and universities in the United States, as well as colleges and universities in more than 30 other countries, have an AP policy granting incoming students credit, placement, or both on the basis of their AP Exam grades.
AP courses at GRACE are taught by teachers that have been certified to teach AP from the College Board. Our course syllabi have been approved as AP courses by the College Board. These courses are taught at a college level and usually require more work at home for our students than our other courses. For this reason, AP courses are weighted a full point higher than other courses (an A is worth a 5.0 on a 4.0 scale, a B is worth a 4.0, and so on).
Students in AP courses are expected to take the AP Exam in May. These exams are given at GRACE and usually last three hours each.
