Advanced Placement Curriculum (AP)
The deadline for registration and payment is Friday, Jan. 18, 2013. Don't delay!
The Advanced Placement curriculum (AP) constitutes individual AP subjects taught with the rigor of a university level course that offers students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Chandler High School's AP teachers regularly attend national College Board Conferences to assure the AP instruction exceeds all requirements and many of our AP teachers are AP Examiner Scorers for AP exams each year. CHS AP students earn 100's of university credits per year because of the caliber of instruction they receive from our master AP teachers. Many AP students earn the honor of National Merit Finalist, Baird Scholarship recipient, FLINN scholar, and as a group, are offered millions of dollars in scholarships.
CHS has a long and respected history of offering challenging AP courses in every subject area, so students may optimize their preparation for success at any university in the world. The AP curriculum is is not a Diploma Program, nor will the student earn an additional diploma, as in the International Baccalaureate Program, but they may earn significant credits accepted by the majority of the nation’s universities and colleges.
The AP examination fee is $92.00 per test and must be paid prior to sitting for the exam. The AP exams occur in May, with exam results mailed to the students and university/colleges of the student’s choice. Universities and colleges may grant college credit if the student earns a score of 3 or higher (based on a 5-point scale) on each exam. Students must, however, verify with the university or college the amount of credit that will be granted for each subject exam. The amount of credit may vary from subject to subject, but the majority of universities do grant significant credit to incoming freshman.
