AP (pending)

The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a set of college-level courses and exams offered by the College Board in the United States. The program is designed to give high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses and potentially earn college credit. The AP curriculum is divided into 38 different courses, spanning a wide range of subjects including English, history, mathematics, science, and languages.

AP courses are typically more challenging than regular high school courses and cover material that is equivalent to that taught in the first year of college. Students who take AP courses are required to take the corresponding AP exam at the end of the school year. The exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with a score of 3 or higher considered passing. Many colleges and universities will award college credit or advanced placement to students who score well on AP exams.

The AP program is recognized and respected by colleges and universities around the world and is seen as a way for students to demonstrate their readiness for college-level work and to stand out on college applications.

It is with great excitement that we announce that EMC will soon offer an Advanced Placement (AP) program, further enhancing the academic offerings for our students. This expansion is a natural progression given the exceptional skills and unwavering commitment of our faculty to student success.
