Advanced Placement and Capstone
US College Board Advanced Placement Program
Advanced Placement (AP) is a program created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students. North American colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations. The AP curriculum for each of the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and college-level educators in each field of study. For a high school course to have the AP designation, the course must be audited by the College Board to ascertain that it satisfies the AP curriculum. If the course is approved, the school may use the AP designation and the course will be publicly listed on the AP Course Ledger.
At ISPS most AP courses are taught by teachers at the school while some are offered through our online service providers, The Virtual High School and Wisconsin Virtual School.
