Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous, college-level classes designed for students to take as part of their high school curriculum.
Northeast Bradford offers the following AP courses:
- AP English Composition and Literature
- AP Psychology
- AP Chemistry
- AP Statistics
- AP Environmental Science
At the end of each course, students are eligible to take the AP examination to earn potential college credit. This exam is optional, although students are strongly encouraged to test.
AP exams are on set dates set by the College Board. Students eligible for free or reduced lunch have tested at very little to no cost. Sign-ups take place in early spring. The cost per exam is around $92. AP exams are scored on a scale of 1 – 5. Most schools will give credit for an exam grade of 3 to 5 as credit for having had that particular college course, but each institution varies.
