AP AP!

Students enrolled in AP courses in the fall are required to do additional summer study, something we are calling Advanced Preparation for Advanced Placement Courses—in other words, AP AP! All students enrolled in these courses will be expected to have a solid knowledge of these required materials for the first day of classes.


The format of the AP AP work varies by course. For courses in English and World Languages, the AP AP work is included in the summer reading assignments. For other courses, see below.
