Arizona Cultural Academy is now qualified to enroll students in Advanced Placement or AP Courses. AP Courses will be offered to students grades 8-12 in conjunction with their current courses and have the option to enroll in and take additional classes for selected subjects during Bonus Hour. Students will be limited to two AP courses for the 2018 school year.
Enrolled students are expected to be engaged in advanced level of assignments, assesments, and activities. Students have the option to be tested for the subjects they are enrolled in.
The AP Program is run by the College Board and allows students to take courses in high school and earn college credits or qualify for more advanced classes once they enter college. By taking AP courses and scoring successfully on related AP exams, students have the opportunity for even more savings on college expenses.
Most exams are two to three hours long with limited breaks. The first part of the exam consists of multiple choice questions. The second part of the exam consists of free response questions. The responses could be in the form of an essay, solution to a problem, or a spoken response. The AP teacher will go through the exam format in class.
