Advance Placement Classes
Advanced Placement Courses are year-long, college level courses that may require additional textbooks, time, fees and the need to take the AP level exam during the Spring Semester. If the qualifying score is received on the exam from an AP class online, a participating college may award credit or waive an equivalent course requirement.
Students may take the AP exam at the Faith Baptist Christian Academy facility, or they can work with school counselors to determine an alternate testing location. A testing location should be secured as early as possible in the school year.
Students taking AP classes online must attempt the AP test in order to receive an additional grade point, but each school determines AP credit individually. Check back frequently as additional AP classes are added. Below is a list of AP courses:
•AP Biology •AP Calculus •AP Chemistry •AP English Language Arts •AP English Literature •AP Economics •AP Physics •AP US Government •AP US History •AP World History
