The Advanced Placement (AP) program does not lead to a High School diploma on its own. Rather, it consists of individual courses offered at an advanced level, designed to match college/university level study. Schools that offer AP often combine it with their own High School Diploma program, with students typically taking a mix of AP and regular classes. For example, in the first year of a 2-year High School Diploma, students may take English, Math, Spanish, and some electives, with an AP course available for each subject. AP courses take approximately eight months to complete. They can be taken in the final or penultimate year of the Diploma or even earlier if a student desires and can.
AP courses are meant for students who have a strong interest in a particular subject and want to prepare themselves for advanced studies in that field, especially if they plan to attend a college or university in the USA or abroad. These courses follow a lecture-based teaching method, similar to universities, and require students to do a lot of reading and self-directed learning. The pace is quick and ends with a final exam where success depends on a thorough and substantial understanding of each course.
