  • Stone Bridge High School

2
What is AP?
  • The Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created
    by the College Board offering college-level
    curriculum and examinations to high school
    students. American colleges often grant placement
    and course credit to students who obtain high
    scores above a certain number on the
    examinations.

3
Why take AP courses?
  • Confidence develop better study habits, improve
    your writing skills and sharpen your problem
    solving abilities.
  • Credit Entering college with AP credits gives
    you time to move into upper-level courses in your
    field of interest, pursue a double major, or
    study/travel abroad
  • College Success Research consistently shows
    that students who are successful in AP typically
    experience greater academic success in college
    than similar students who do not participate in
    AP.

Dual Enrollment
  • What is dual enrollment?
  • Dual enrollment is an enrichment opportunity that
    allows qualified high school students to take
    college courses and earn college credit and
    possibly receive high school credit for these
    courses.
  • Why take dual enrollment courses?
  • Studies show that students who acquire college
    credits while in high school are more likely to
    graduate and continue their education beyond high
    school. Taking dual enrollment classes allows you
    to progress towards both your high school and
    post-secondary education goals at the same time.
  • Is dual enrollment right for everyone?
  • Dual enrollment is an opportunity to take
    challenging courses and begin a college
    education. Dual enrollment courses become a part
    of your permanent college transcript, so it's
    important that you commit to the extra work a
    college course may require.
