Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at Strath Haven High School and they follow the prescribed AP curriculum set by the College Entrance Examination Board. Such courses are approved by the College Entrance Examination Board as equivalent to college level instruction and are offered in most curricular areas. Strath Haven High School administers College Board AP examinations that allow students to earn college credit for the courses.
In 2010, the Board of School Directors mandated that Strath Haven High School begin to require students who enroll in Advanced Placement courses to take the Advanced Placement exam administered by the College Board in May.
Students are expected to pay for the exam, but may request assistance with the fee(s) through the Office of the Principal, provided the request is made in advance of the start of the course.
Course credit will be issued in these courses only upon completion of the teacher and board-established course requirements. Failing to receive credit in certain AP courses, just as in any course, could affect a student’s meeting graduation requirements for total credits, or credit distribution.
