1 Honors & Advanced Placement Informational Session 2015

2  Honors (Pre-AP) Courses prepare students for AP level courses.  AP courses are college-level courses taken in high school  AP exams are taken to potentially earn college credit ◦ score range is 1-5 ◦ 4 or 5 = credit at most colleges / universities ◦ 3 = some colleges / universities award credit for specified areas

3  Challenging course work ◦ Upper level and college equivalent work  Increased work load ◦ Work ethic is as important as intelligence ◦ It’s normal for students to struggle initially ◦ Students will work harder to earn an A or B

4  AP students are more likely to be successful in college ◦ Students who complete AP courses and exams are more likely to complete a college degree on time  Only one in four students who enter college complete a bachelor’s degree in four years (IPEDS database, 2008) ◦ “One of the best standard predictors of academic success at Harvard is performance on Advanced Placement Examinations.”  —William Fitzsimmons, Dean of Admissions & Financial Aid, Harvard University

5  Saves Time and Money ◦ Earn college credit while still in high school ◦ Increase Scholarship Opportunities  Specific scholarships for Honors and AP students  31% of colleges and universities consider a student’s AP experience when making decisions about which students will receive scholarships.*  Having the AP Exam score can make the difference when it comes down to awarding precious scholarship dollars. —Edwina Harris Hamby, former Dean of Admission, Fisk University
