Advanced Placement (AP)
 /  Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion, and hard work of students and educators. The AP Program enables students to take college level courses and exams and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.

It is the mission of St. Thomas More’s AP Program to provide willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. In order to support this mission, the curriculum is designed to advance the student’s analytical thinking skills, writing abilities and knowledge in specific subject areas, not to strictly pass the AP test. Additionally, the rigorous instruction provided by the AP teacher will create a learning environment conducive to student success.

Standards for Admission:

  • Approval from the AP teacher
  • Have at least a B- average in all courses within the academic area of the respective AP course
  • Demonstrate a good attendance record
  • Display the qualities of a model student: good behavior, responsibility, strong work ethic, academic honesty
