Advanced Placement (AP) is a College Board program (like the PSAT and SAT). The AP exam is a culmination of content learned in a year-long course. These courses are college-level and accelerated. Liberty HS offers 16 AP courses that span all subject areas.
Before considering taking an AP course, it is important to familiarize yourself with what an AP course actually entails. This is time-consuming, challenging coursework, so make sure you actually like the subject, want the challenge, feel confident with the material, and have time to devote. The AP course descriptions in the Course Guide will give you an idea of what is expected in each course, what prior knowledge and experience may be helpful, etc. For more information about our AP course offerings, please refer to our Course Guide.
The AP exams occur in the first two full weeks of May of each year and are 2-3.25 hours long (length varies by subject area). AP exam scores are available in July and students can send scores to colleges to receive college credit. Each college will have their respective AP exam score policy. AP exam scores are not required for college admission.
