11 Pre-AP or Advanced Placement What is the Pre-AP/AP program? Allows students to participate in college preparatory courses and possibly receive college credit while still in high school Who can enroll in a Pre-AP/AP course? Any student!

12 Pre-AP and AP Courses More complex and faster pace Pre-AP courses prepare students for AP courses AP courses may earn college credit with a score of 3 or higher on the AP exam at the end of the year Current 8 th grade teachers may be good resources to help students determine if Pre-AP courses are appropriate for 9 th grade

13 Is Pre-AP/AP right for me? Higher level and more divergent thinking in coursework and assignments More independent work outside of class No late work accepted Does not allow retests Do I possess these qualities? *Enjoy the subject *Self-manager *Motivated *Organized *Like to read *Efficient note taker *Meet deadlines *Work independently *Goes beyond teacher expectation *Manage time well

14 Most Importantly. Consider how much time each Pre-AP or AP course demands Consider extra-curricular activities your student is involved in Consider your child balance is important! Level changes are only made at the end of the first three weeks and at the end of the first semester. Schedule changes can be stressful
