A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you’ll notice the difference—in the teacher’s approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you’ll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Find Your Passion

With 23 AP courses to choose from, including Environmental Science, Chemistry, Calculus, World History, Government, Economics and Psychology, you’ll be able to explore your interests and discover new passions. In AP classes, you’ll study fascinating topics and ideas that just might become the foundation of your future college major or career.

Prepare to Succeed in College

AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you’ll need to be successful in college. You’ll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits. AP Leads to College Success.

Earn College Credit and Placement

More than 90 percent of four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double-major or study abroad.

CRHS Late Testing Policy

Occasionally it’s necessary for students to take a make-up AP exam due to extenuating circumstances. To preserve the security of AP Exams, alternate forms are used. If you find yourself in the position where you will miss your regularly scheduled AP exam, you must contact the AP coordinator immediately and provide written documentation for missing the exam so that an alternate exam is ordered for you before the final ordering deadline (usually the last day of regularly scheduled exams). Failure to do so means a make-up exam will not be ordered for you.
