All students at Olympian High School are encouraged to complete at least one Advanced Placement (AP) course or college level class during their four years of high school. AP courses are demanding and dynamic classes, with a rigorous curriculum designed by the College Board. Taking AP courses gives students a head start on college while still in the supportive environment of a high school classroom. Taking the end-of-course AP exam sends a powerful message to colleges that the student is ready for college level work, and can enable the student to gain admission, college credit, and placement into advanced courses. Olympian High School offers a variety of AP courses in many subject areas. Students should check with their college(s) of interest to understand the school’s policy on AP credits.
