What’s the Difference Between AP and Honors Courses?

AP Courses

AP classes are rigorous college level courses and if passed, are accepted as college units by most colleges . Placement in these courses is based on GPA in previous courses, teacher recommendation and an entry test. Many of these courses require summer work. AHS requires students enrolled in these courses to take the course designated College Board AP Exam in May of that school year. Passage of the College Board AP Test with a score of 3 or above allows a one point grade bump in the AHS course at the end of the academic year. The first opportunity students have to enter an AP class is as a sophomore.

Honors Courses

Like our other college preparatory classes, Honors courses prepare our students for continuing education. With additional requirements, they prepare students for rigorous Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Students enrolled in these classes do receive a grade bump however, unlike the AP courses, students do not take a designated College Board Exam at the end of the academic year and grades are not considered college units by colleges.
