What is the Pre-AP program?
Pre-AP was designed by the College Board as an accessible academic program for junior high students. It prepares students for the AP program, which offers college-level courses in high school, preparing students for outstanding performance in college.
The main goal of the Pre-AP program is to provide the necessary tools for middle school students to excel in their high school and college studies. To do this, Pre-AP offers a focused framework, instructional support, model lessons, classroom assessments, and an optional final exam.
Some of the advantages of Pre-AP are:
It offers 12 courses in multiple domains: English, math, science, history, arts, world, and geography. They all share a focus on critical thinking skills that prepare students for college and career options.
It gives teachers the ability to customize courses to meet the needs of their students.
It starts in junior high school and prepares students for the AP Program in high school.
Students build essential life skills such as: reading for evidence, constructing sentences to support claims, interpreting data, and making sense of the world with quantitative information. Teachers use a focused framework supported by engaging, grade-appropriate content.
