AP courses challenge the brightest students and help them earn college credit while still in high school. Our AP courses are taught by certified teachers with subject-matter expertise and extra training in online instruction. These college-level courses include tutorials, multimedia simulations and online discussions. AP courses meet Michigan and AdvancED curriculum standards, and are geared to prepare students to successfully complete College Board exams.
AP courses are offered as semester courses during the school year. Visit the AP Course Catalogs in CEMS and review the AP flyer (PDF) for more information.
