“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds to think.”

Albert Einstein

Advanced
Placement
(AP)

Advanced Placement (AP) is a rigorous academic program that prepares students for the transition from high school to university, and is the largest academic enrichment program in the world. 

Advanced Placement courses provide students with an opportunity to get a headstart on university and even to earn university credits and advanced standing in university. When students complete an AP course, they have the choice of using the higher grade on either their AP or diploma exam when applying to university or college. Completing AP courses also makes students eligible for scholarships and grants only open to AP students.

The Advanced Placement courses students take at W.P. Wagner High School are recognized by 3,900 universities in over 30 countries!

Why take AP?

According to the College Board, more than 2.8 million students in grades 9-12 took AP exams in 2019. World history, English language and composition, calculus, government and politics, statistics, and psychology are some of the most popular AP subjects.

 

Students taking AP classes can earn college credit, prepare themselves for the rigors of higher education, and even skip introductory classes at the next level. Scoring well on AP tests also helps students qualify for admission to the nation’s top postsecondary institutions.
