​​​​​Advanced Placement (AP)


The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a testing program of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB). It is a special, college-level, learning experience for high school students, which can take the form of an honors class, a strong regular course, a tutorial, or an independent study.

High school students who have participated in the Advanced Placement Program during high school or have developed an equivalent background through self-initiative may take tests offered by the College Board each year during the month of May, and scores will be reported to three colleges of the student's choice. The student must have successfully completed one quarter at YVC before advanced placement credit will be placed on the transcript. Scores in computer science, economics, and music may also be submitted and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. 

The following credit will be granted to students entering YVC who have submitted scores from the College Board Advanced Placement Examinations Program.
