Welcome to the LRSD Advanced Placement Program Page
Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement (AP) courses allow students to take college-level courses while in high school. College Board has 38 Advanced Placement (AP) courses across 20 subject areas. At the end of the school year, students take the national AP examination for the course or courses they are enrolled in and may earn college credit for an AP exam score of 3 or higher. During the college application and admissions process, students who have taken AP classes in high school distinguish themselves by demonstrating their desire to take challenging academic courses. Check the LRSD High School Course Catalog which includes all courses offered in the LRSD.
