What do you need to know about AP Classes?

AP Classes are high-level, quality courses in any of twenty subjects. The program is administered through the College Board to offer high school course descriptions equated to college courses and correlated to AP examinations in those subjects. 

LCHS provides the courses as part of their curriculum to eligible students. Based on the composite score on an AP test, which ranges from 0 to 5, a college may award college credit or advanced placement to a participating student. 

A score of a [4] or [5] on the AP test is usually required by colleges for credit or advanced placement in college courses. A [3] is sometimes acceptable in foreign languages and some other subject areas. Some colleges limit the number of AP credits that they will recognize.
