Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Through EAHS' Advanced Placement (AP) college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit, stand out in the admission process, and learn from some of the most skilled, dedicated, and inspiring teachers. AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you'll need to be successful in college. You'll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time-management skills, discipline, and study habits. Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement, or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you'll have the time to move into upper-level courses, pursue a double major, or study abroad.
In accordance with district policy, students enrolled in courses designated as “Honors”, “GATE”, and “Advanced Placement” shall be granted .04 grade point for a grade of “C” or better in each course taken from the first semester of tenth grade through the first semester of twelfth grade. A maximum of four augmented course grades (eight semesters) from the first semester of tenth grade through the first semester of twelfth grade will be added to the student’s academic grade point average to determine rank in class, valedictorian status, and other academic awards.
