AP Courses: (Summer preparation may be required.)
Many of the departments offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses, which have a nationally-based curriculum, entailing a level of commitment and rigor appropriate to a college level course, culminating in a three-hour national exam. Each department has determined the criteria by which a student may qualify to enroll in each AP course. The school makes sure that this challenge is a correct match by consulting the teachers and the counselor who verifies that the student meets the criteria for entering the course. Not all students are eligible or appropriate for AP classes, and the school reserves the right to make that decision. In order to honor the integrity of the AP program, a student who enrolls in an AP course will complete the course and sit for the AP exam.
In order to determine the student’s strong aptitude, achievement, and interest in the particular subject matter, and to aid students in making thoughtful academic decisions with regard to AP coursework, Lyndon Academy has developed the following AP course admission criteria.
