The College Board’s Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both — while still in high school. Students engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.  AP Instructors are highly trained and utilize research-based strategies to reach all students. The content in AP courses is structured similarly to college coursework. Students emerge prepared for further education.   College admissions offices often look favorably on a history of AP coursework on student transcripts.

South currently offers the following AP courses, many of which are not available at other schools.  Click on the course names to learn more, and watch the preview videos from students who have been successful in the course.

New in 2017-18:  AP Computer Science Principles, AP Studio Art.

AP Exams are given each year in May. A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam will usually  earn a student college credit and/or placement into advanced courses in colleges nationwide.  It is a core expectation at South that students will take the examinations for each course in which they enrolled.

A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam will usually  earn a student college credit and/or placement into advanced courses in colleges nationwide.  It is a core expectation at South that students will take the examinations for each course in which they enrolled.  In addition, students have the opportunity to take additional AP examinations on a case-by-case basis, in order to document special knowledge in areas for which no course is offered.

The AP Program offers more than 30 courses and exams.

  • Nearly 18,000 schools worldwide participate in the AP Program.
  • 28.3 percent of U.S. public high school students in the class of 2010 took an AP Exam at some point in high school. In 2010, more than 1.8 million students worldwide took more than 3.2 million AP Exams.
  • More than 90 percent of the nation's four-year colleges and universities have an AP policy that grants incoming students credit, placement or both for qualifying AP Exam scores.
  • Universities in more than 60 countries recognize AP scores in the admission process and/or award credit and placement for qualifying scores. In 2010, more than 3,800 colleges and universities accepted qualifying AP Exam scores for credit and/or placement.

Each AP Exam, with the exception of AP Studio Art, consists of multiple-choice questions that are scored by machine, as well as free-response questions (essays, translations, problems, oral responses) that are scored by more than 10,000 college faculty and AP teachers using scoring standards and rubrics developed by college and university faculty who teach the corresponding college courses.

The composite score for each AP Exam is converted to a score of 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1.

  • A score of 5 is equivalent to an A in the corresponding college course.
  • A score of 4 is equivalent to grades of A-, B+ and B.
  • A score of 3 is equivalent to grades of B-, C+ and C.
