Advanced Placement


What is AP Academy? 

AP stands for Advanced Placement coursework.  Advanced Placement offerings are sponsored and supported by the College Board.   Information is available through the College Board Website -What is AP?   Advanced Placement courses allow students to earn early college credits while attending high school. These courses are most often yearlong and provide students college level curriculum.  Students often must meet prerequisites to qualify for AP Courses and at the conclusion of each course must take and pass the Advanced Placement Exam aligned to their selected course(s) in order to earn the college credit.  Within Iredell-Statesville Schools all traditional high schools offer AP coursework.  However, West Iredell Middle School and West Iredell High School are working together to create a partnership of support for students to increase accessibility to AP offerings!
