The Advanced Placement (AP) Program, sponsored by the College Board, gives students the opportunity to participate in college-level work in high school and earn college credit. All traditional secondary (7th-12th) AISD campuses offer AP courses in language arts, math, science, social studies, computer science, foreign languages, and art. Each course presents an academic challenge for students while building the skills needed to succeed in college. AP courses are available through open enrollment to all students wishing to take on the challenge of advanced coursework.
