Every Summit Student Takes AP Courses & Exams

At Summit, we hold high expectations for each and every one of our students. No matter their background or prior educational experiences, our goal is the same: to ensure that they are truly career and college ready when they graduate our schools. To prepare our students for college, we strongly believe in the value of our students taking AP classes and exams because:
  • Research shows that preparing for and taking AP exams leads to success in college 
  • AP exams prepares students for the rigor of final exams in college-level courses 
  • Taking and getting a good score on AP exams strengthens college applications 
  • Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying scores (usually a 3 or 4). Find a college's credit policy
That's why all of our juniors and seniors will take at least 6 AP courses across their core academic areas: english, history, science, and math, with options to take more if they like. Summit will also pay for all our students to take at least 3 AP exams before they graduate! And, our students are passing AP exams at over 3 times the rate of US high schools, on average.
