Kell High School Advanced Placement Information

Kell AP Program

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses offer students the chance to experience the rigor of college-level content and course work as well as the opportunity to earn college credit before ever leaving high school!

The AP Program curriculum is developed and supported by the College Board. More information can be found here: https://ap.collegeboard.org 

The powerpoint below offers more information about AP Courses, the benefits of taking AP Classes and Exams, and how they compare to honors level and Dual Enrollment classes.
