Advanced Studies & Advanced Placement Courses

ADVANCED STUDIES PROGRAM

To earn college credits while taking classes at Pavilion Central School, a student enrolls in the course with the sponsoring college at the appropriate time, pays the tuition (at a significant reduction from the regular tuition rates), attends the course at Pavilion, and meets its requirements.

             At the conclusion of the course, the student will receive an official  transcript from the college, and thus the credits are transferable to most other colleges and universities.  Please note that students enrolling in a different college after graduation need to request that the sponsoring college send an official transcript to that college.  The high school transcript is not sufficient.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES & EXAMS

     AP provides students with an opportunity for learning that goes beyond just facts and figures.  The rich course material, classroom discussions and demanding assignments typical of AP courses will help your child develop the content mastery and critical thinking skills expected of college students.  What’s more, by participating in AP, your child has the opportunity to earn college credit and to stand out in the college admissions process. 

     With qualifying AP exam scores, you can earn credit, advanced placement or both at the majority of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.  Individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP Program, grant course credit and placement.  You should obtain a college’s AP policy in writing.  You can usually find this information through the institution directly or by using the AP Credit Policy Info search at www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy. 

     In May, students in AP classes will take a standardized exam developed by the College Board.  In the 2013-2014 school year, the cost of an exam was $89.  This fee is determined by College Board and is subject to yearly increases.
