Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Recommendations

June 13, 2018

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is an opportunity for high school students to pursue a rigorous course of study by enrolling in AP courses. It also provides a chance to receive credit for college-level course work by taking and scoring the appropriate score on an AP exam. The AP program, sponsored and governed by the College Board, is based on the premise that college-level material can successfully be learned by well-prepared secondary students. Like other College Board programs, the AP program is national in scope and is based on a set of standards and course descriptions approved by the College Board.


In order to best prepare for your AP courses the following course links outline information for students to review over the summer.  Not all AP courses have summer work or activities. Summer work is recommended and not required. For students that complete the summer work, they will have less to complete during the school year.  For students that do not complete the summer work, they will have more to cover during the school year.


Summer work is presented to students in an effort to reduce anxiety and to provide additional time.   Non completion of summer work is not a reason to drop a course. If you have any questions regarding this, please see your teacher once the school year starts and generate a plan for success.
