Dr. Anne Anderson High School offers Advanced Placement (AP) programming. AP is an internationally recognized program that prepares students to experience college or university-level courses while enrolled in high school.
AP is a rigorous academic program that prepares you for the transition from high school to university, and it’s the largest academic enrichment program in the world. Last year, more than 2.6 million high school students at nearly 18,000 schools worldwide took AP exams. Enrolling in AP courses will allow you to complete university courses as part of your high school studies.

Colleges may offer both credit and placement, just credit, or just placement for successful AP scores. Visit your university or college’s website or talk to an admission officer to find out which kind of recognition is offered.
