The College board’s advanced placement courses are college-level classes in a wide variety of subject’s that you can take while still in high school. They offer you challenging course work and a taste of what college classes are like. College credit is given to students who receive a passing score on the AP Exam in May. All exams are proctored at FBA and there will be a fee associated with the course.
What is the difference between an AP course and an honors course?
An AP course generally requires more from the student academically than an honors course. Although honors are advanced courses, AP courses are college level classes a student can take in high school. An honors course is an advanced class but does not give the student college credit.
Can my child participate in dual enrollment?
