Advanced Placement Program

All classes at Sayre School are college preparatory.  Honors and/or Advanced Placement (AP) courses are also offered. Sayre offers 16 AP courses.  All Upper School students who demonstrate sufficient achievement in or affinity for an academic discipline are invited ao apply for inclusion in the Advanced Placement curriculum. A distinguishing feature of Sayre's AP program is that all students enrolled in AP courses must sit for the Advanced Placement Examinations in order to receive AP credit for the course on their transcript.

 

AP Scoring

AP exams are scored on a 1-5 scale. The College Board defines students who receive a 3 as qualified in that subject matter.

5 = extremely well qualified
4 = well qualified
3 = qualified
2 = possibly qualified
1 = no recommendation

The score measures achievement in a college-level AP course, and is used by colleges and universities to determine if they will grant a student credit for what they've learned, or if one is able to skip the equivalent course once admitted to college. (www.collegeboard.org)
