Advanced Placement at Tupelo High School
For over 50 years, the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program has partnered with colleges, universities, and high schools to provide students with the opportunity to take college-level course work and exams while still in high school. Advanced Placement provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or placement and helps them stand out in the college admissions process. Taught by dedicated, passionate AP teachers who bring cutting-edge content knowledge and expert teaching skills to the classroom, AP courses help students develop the study skills, habits of mind, and critical-thinking abilities that they will need to succeed in college.
AP is accepted by more than 3,600 colleges and universities worldwide for college credit, advanced placement, or both on the basis of successful AP Exam grades. This includes over 90 percent of four-year institutions in the United States. Individual institutions—not the AP Program or the College Board—set their policies for awarding credit and/or placement. Students can view an institution’s AP credit or placement policy by visiting www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy or by contacting an institution directly.
A listing of colleges and universities outside the United States that recognize AP for credit, placement, and/or admissions decisions can be found at www.collegeboard.com/apintl.
