Advanced Placement Courses & Exams
Advanced Placement (AP) is a program of university-level courses for high school students. BC students who are looking for an additional challenge to help them prepare for university-level learning, often choose to pursue AP courses, and challenge exams. The standards, curricula and exams are set by the American College Board, but these courses and exams are recognized by top Canadian and worldwide universities. These courses also provide an opportunity for students to distinguish themselves for their academic excellence and enhance their opportunities for entrance scholarships to universities.
The dates are set by the College Board. Details can be found on the College Board Website. Below we will also list the schedule according to the exams Columbia Academy plans to offer.
