Advanced Placement

At the apex of ASM’s curricular program in all core disciplines is the Advanced Placement (AP) program.  These rigorous, college level courses enable students to take college courses at the high school level.  At ASM we have undergone the AP Audit for all of our AP offerings.  We encourage our students to take as many APs as they can:

    • AP French Language & Culture
    • AP English Language and Composition
    • AP English Literature and Composition
    • AP Calculus
    • AP Statistics
    • AP Biology
    • AP Physics
    • AP European History
    • AP Comparative Government
    • AP Human Geography
    • AP US History

Reasons to take AP Courses:

Competitive advantage in college admissions: Eighty-five percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student’s AP experience favorably impacts admission decisions.

College credit for qualifying AP Exam scores: Find colleges and universities that offer credit or placement for AP using the AP Credit Policy Search.

Financial benefits: Research shows that students who take AP are much more likely than their peers to complete a college degree on time.

Greater course depth: Students have the opportunity to dig deeper into subjects that interest them, develop advanced research and communication skills, and learn to tap their creative, problem-solving, and analytical potential.

Preparation for college-level work: AP courses give students access to rigorous college-level work. AP students build confidence and learn the essential time management and study skills needed for college and career success.

Take the next steps together: Encourage your child to talk to peers, counselors, and teachers to learn more about the benefits of AP courses and the specific process for enrolling in their school’s AP program.
