What is the Advanced Placement Program in Firm Schools?
APP is a three year sequence of course work, offered by the College Board and concentrating on a number of subject areas. AP courses are optional, but highly desirable because they offer students the opportunity to work at a first year college level and take a passing exam in May of the senior year. A successful score in an AP course generally eliminates the need to take the equivalent first year college course.
Firm Schools, and especially Ivy Prep schools, offer Advanced Placement courses to their students. These schools have to maintain a highly qualified and experienced faculty in order to help their students achieve the necessary scores on the difficult AP examinations. For Firm Schools, a high number of students in AP courses with passing grades is a direct and positive reflection of their academic program and reputation.
For Firm Schools and students, this is a win-win situation. The more APP courses offered by a school, the more students apply. The more students who opt for and achieve success in AP courses, the better the school’s reputation.
