The College Board is a not-for-profit membership association whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. The College Board is committed to the principles of excellence and equity, and that commitment is embodied in all of its programs, services, activities, and concerns. The Advanced Placement (AP) program provides rigorous academic coursework in the major subject fields, with course content designed at a college level. Courses are offered in English, social studies, science, world languages, math, and fine arts. AP courses are open to any student who is interested in academic rigor. A student enrolled in an AP course must take the corresponding AP examination to receive the 1.0 weighted grade. AP courses are recognized for college credit by many universities in the United States and abroad. All AP course syllabuses are approved by the College Board AP Course Audit.
The AP program is offered at Centreville, Chantilly, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, Langley, Madison, McLean, Oakton, West Potomac, West Springfield, Westfield and Woodson high schools and Hayfield, Lake Braddock, and South County secondary schools.
High school curricular transfer requests may be submitted for Advanced Placement program, International Baccalaureate program, foreign language or academy course sequence. The course of study must not be offered at the base high school. Parents or guardians may request a transfer to the school with space available that is closest to their residence. Parents or guardians and students must sign a Letter of Understanding for the requested program. Requests are not permitted for individual courses or extracurricular activities.
A student who requests a transfer for the AP or IB program must commit to the advanced academic program:
