Advanced Programs

Westview High School Advanced Programs

In operation since 1955, the Advanced Placement Program has a long record of providing students the opportunity to take college-level courses and examinations while still in high school. Participation in an AP class brings many benefits to students:

  • AP courses provide the chance to study a particular subject in more depth
  • AP courses prepare students for the demands of college work and help with achievement in other courses
  • Depending on AP national exam scores and a student’s choice of college, students may qualify for college credit.

Please note: For the 2019-20 school year, students who want to participate in the national AP exams in May 2020 will be required to register and pay for AP exams in the fall.  This is a change in practice for AP Exams.
