The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Based on their performance on rigorous AP Examinations given in May, students can earn credit and / or advanced placement for college. In addition, the AP Program offers students these benefits:

* Allows high school students to take courses that are challenging, rigorous and in-depth - exactly the kinds of courses they will face once in college.
* Prepares students to succeed in college.
* Enables students to pursue a double major, to study or travel abroad, or to undertake a combined Bachelor's and Master's Program through the credits they earn for their AP achievements.

Qualified students who are willing to accept the challenge of a curriculum that serves as a national standard for college-level achievement should consider these courses. Students enrolling in Advanced Placement courses must meet stated course and grade prerequisites and departmental approval. To maximize the likelihood of successfully completing these courses, students must evidence strong academic skills, high test scores, command of the subject matter, consistency of performance and self-discipline.

The Assisted Learning Program serves students with documented learning disabilities and those who need additional assistance with their academic responsibilities. Recognizing that some students have mild learning difficulties that impact their ability to benefit from traditional methods of instruction, the Assisted Learning Program is a program designed to assist and respond to the needs of students who learn differently within a rigorous and meaningful college preparatory program.

Required documentation and evaluations must be performed by a licensed educational psychologist, psychologist, psychiatrist or developmental pediatrician and be three years current.
