Attention AP students: If you earned a 3, 4 or 5 on your AP tests last spring and feel it represents your understanding of the subject better than the letter grade you received, you can petition for a grade change.  Petitions can be found online (Grade Change Petition), in AP teacher classrooms or the CCC.  All petitions are due to the CCC on Sept 25, 2015 by 2:45 PM.

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you'll notice the difference—in the teacher's approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you'll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

AP and the Cost of College

Research shows that your AP experience can benefit you in several important ways when you reach college:

  • AP students are more likely to graduate from college in four years - students who take longer to graduate at public colleges and universities
    can spend up to $19,000(1) for each additional year.
  • AP helps students qualify for scholarships - 31 percent of colleges and universities look at AP experience when determining scholarships.(2)
