Advanced Placement

The success of our students in Advanced Placement courses makes colleges and universities aware that they have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate academic environment.

The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a rigorous nationally defined curricula that challenges students with college level curriculum designed to reflect introductory courses at a college or university. The AP was created by the College Board (the same organization that authors the SAT) in order to advance student opportunities in high school.

AP teachers support students in learning environments that allow students to tackle curriculum ahead of their years. These courses provide the possibility for students to earn college credit and qualify to take more accelerated classes as they begin their academic college experience.

Course Descriptions

IB English

We do not offerm an English AP course in the English department, as we have IB Standard Level and Higher Level honors courses. However, Higher Level IB students in both Language and Literature and Literature, can choose to register and take either the Lang and Composition or the Literature AP exam.

In English  HL IB classes, students will be developing the holistic skills that they need to approach the AP exam. We highly encourage our students, to take the AP exam, but it is not mandatory as IB students must sit for the IB exams in second year.

Benefits of AP Courses

The success of North Broward Preparatory School students in AP courses makes colleges and universities aware that they have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate academic environment. When elite colleges and universities see “AP” on our students’ transcripts, they know that what each student experienced in a particular class has prepared them well for the challenges of college. Taking AP is an indication that the student is ready and equipped for the most rigorous classes North Broward Prep has to offer.

AP Courses teach the skills and habits of mind that most students first learn in college. North Broward AP students develop critical thinking, problem solving, time management, and communication skills. A strong work ethic, creativity, grit, and the ability to overcome obstacles are the rewards of success in these courses, along with potential college credit. For more information regarding how credits for qualifying scores are granted, you should visit colleges’ websites.

AP Exams

Students do not need to do anything to register for the AP test.  If they are taking an AP class they are automatically registered to take the AP Exam.  

The cost of each AP exam is $94.00 which will be billed to the student’s account. For more details, please contact our AP coordinator, Kim Blow.
