Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges. AP courses expose high school students to college-level material and give students the opportunity to show that they have mastered the material by taking an AP exam.

Students can benefit from taking AP courses by learning a subject in greater depth, developing skills that will be critically important to successful study in college, and demonstrating to colleges their willingness to undertake a challenging course.

Students take AP courses and exams for several reasons, including the challenge, the money and time saved, and the opportunities that can unfold as a result.

New college students who have been given AP recognition can take advanced courses, explore different subject areas, enter honors and other special programs, pursue double majors and even complete undergraduate requirements early.

In Appleton, students self-select into AP courses.

Please be aware that all AP courses use college-level curriculum, materials, assessment, and homework. All students taking AP courses will be encouraged to take the corresponding AP exam.

AP registration forms and fees will be collected at each high school as follows:

  • Linda Franklin in the East business office
  • Hailey Kaufman in the North business office
  • Deb Andrews in the West business office
  • Amy Wierschke at Wisconsin Connections Academy (WCA)
  • Kristen Blom at Valley New School (VNS)
