Advanced Placement (AP)

Lafayette High students in Literature class

AP course curriculum and assessments are determined by the AP College Board. Rockwood teachers learn from AP trainers to teach the course, and all syllabi for AP courses must be submitted and approved by the College Board in order for a teacher to teach the course. Each post-secondary institution has its own requirements for accepting AP credit, so it is important for families to research the institutions their child is considering attending for specific details.
