Advanced Placement

St. Dominic Savio offers Advance Placement (AP) classes in a variety of subjects.  The Advance Placement program was first offered in the United States as a way to bring challenging courses into high schools.  These classes are introductory college level courses that are taught by certified high school teachers whose curriculum has been approved by College Board.  All courses are followed by an examination in May.  Students who successfully pass the class and exam can receive college credit.  The AP Program is run by College Board, which is a non-profit membership organization representing more than 6,000 colleges, universities, and schools who are committed to excellence and equity in education.  Their mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity.

To help prepare students for the rigors of AP classes, St. Dominic Savio offers some Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) courses.  Pre-AP courses prepare students for matriculation into AP courses, and are required prior to placement in AP classes.
