Advanced Placement Programs at Clay City High School
The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. It allows high school students to undertake college-level academic learning in AP courses, and gives them the opportunity to show that they have mastered the advanced material by taking AP exams. Students can receive credit, advanced placement, or both from thousands of colleges and universities that participate in the Advanced Placement Program.
AP courses make substantial academic demands on students. Students are required to do outside reading and other assignments and to demonstrate the analytical skills and writing abilities expected of first-year students in a strong college program. This experience helps students develop the intellectual skills and selfdiscipline they will need in college. For these motivated students, AP can also reduce college costs and
time to obtain a degree.
Clay City High School offers Pre-AP courses in English, mathematics, science and social studies are in place in an effort to help students acquire the academic skills necessary for success in AP courses. Additionally, we offer Advanced Placement courses in Language and Composition, Literature and Composition, US History, Calculus, Statistics, Chemistry, and Physics. Please see your guidance counselor
if you are interested in any of these opportunities.
