Advanced Placement

ADVANCED PLACEMENT ADVANTAGE
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are options for able students who want to enrich and challenge themselves in particular subjects by working on university-level material while still in high school. Students can earn university credit and must be committed to thinking and working at a high level. Students can choose a single AP course or any combination of AP courses that suit them (provided they have the prerequisites).

ADVANCED PLACEMENT IN SASKATCHEWAN:
Both the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina, along  with almost all Canadian universities, grant credit to students earning a score  of 4 or 5 in AP courses. Most U.S. universities give credit for scores of 3, 4 or 5.  The student’s score is based entirely on an extended May exam. This university credit is for a first-year class, which saves students tuition and gives them more flexibility in their timetables.
For additional information on how AP courses are recognized in Saskatchewan, visit saskatchewan.ca.

HIGHLIGHTS
• Internationally recognized
• University-level course work
• Potential to earn university credits
• Rigorous academic opportunity
