Advanced Placement Courses

The Advanced Placement Program, sponsored by the College Board, is an intensive program of college-level curricula and examinations that provides high school students an opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Faculty members who teach AP courses at Houston Christian High School develop their course by designing a syllabus and reading schedule to emulate that of college level courses. It is important to understand that AP and Pre-AP courses are designed to challenge the highly motivated student.

It's easy for parents to look at grade point average as the determinate for getting into college. Although GPA is considered for gaining admission to college, it is not the variable that determines how successful a student will be once he or she is in college. According to college admissions' officers, the best predictor of college success is the type of courses a student takes while in high school. AP classes set students up for success.
