Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program allows high school students to take college-level courses and exams that can earn college credit. AP exam scores can allow students to place directly into more advanced courses in college, potentially saving time and money. "AP" on your high school transcript shows college admission officials that you've challenged yourself with rigorous coursework.

CEC's AP offerings include AP Human Geography, AP World History, AP US History, AP Government, AP Microeconomics, AP Calculus AB, AP Computer Science, AP English Language, AP English Literature, and AP Environmental Science.

AP Student Expectations Agreement

Taking an AP course and exam is a collaborative effort between you the student, your parent/guardian, and the school. Each party plays a role and must make the commitment to meet the expectations noted below.

The Student agrees to organize his/her time and effort to successfully complete the AP course in which he/she is enrolled. The student will notify teachers immediately if he/she falls behind in class readings and/or assignments. The student will be expected to complete assignments, readings and projects outside of class time. The student will take the AP Exam on its scheduled date and time as outlined by the College Board.  Failure to take the AP exam will disqualify you from AP designation and GPA points on your transcripts.

The Parent/Guardian agrees to be familiar with and accept the AP course requirements and policies, and to help his/her child organize study time in support of class assignments. The parent/guardian agrees to purchase required materials and to pay the exam fee as determined by the AP Coordinator. If the parent/guardian is unable to meet these requirements for financial reasons, they will contact the AP Coordinator immediately.

The School (AP Teacher and AP Coordinator) agrees to provide rigorous instruction and challenging course content as described in the AP Course Description. The school will provide the student with a copy of the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents and agrees to administer the AP Exam in a fair and secure environment as outlined in the AP Coordinator’s Manual.
