Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement (AP)

Park City High School offers a number of Advanced Placement (AP) courses.  Many colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit and/or the ability to skip introductory courses for qualifying end-of-year AP Exam scores.  Refer to each college or university for their AP credit policies.  Some of our AP courses require students to take the final AP Exam, while others give students the option to take the test.  There is a fee for AP exams, and financial assistance is available if needed.

NOTE: Per a change in College Board policy, students must decide whether or not to take AP exams and order their exams by November 15, 2019.  After the deadline, late fees and/or cancellation fees apply.  For more information about Advanced Placement, see https://apstudent.collegeboard.org.
