Since 2012, XIS has offered Advanced Placement™ (AP) courses to our students. Currently we offer six courses, as well as AP Capstone™:

  • AP Biology

  • AP Calculus BC

  • AP Chemistry

  • AP Statistics

  • AP US History

What are AP courses, and how does it benefit my child?

AP courses offered by College Board allows students to take advanced, college-level classes with the opportunity to earn college credit while still attending high school. Many colleges and universities accept the accompanying AP Exams and will award students credits towards those classes, potentially allowing them to skip entrance-level college courses and get a head start on their collegiate career!

Because AP courses are at college-level difficulty, they are graded on a different scale and can even boost a student’s GPA above 4.0.
