Choctawhatchee High School participates in the nationally recognized Advanced Placement Program of The College Board. High School AP courses provide college level instruction in several areas that help prepare students for the rigorous coursework encountered in college. After completing the courses, students take the AP exam written, administered, and graded by the College Board. Some colleges place students or award college credit based on these test scores.
Choctawhatchee High School offers Advanced Placement courses in the following areas: English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, Computer Science and Social Studies. Students enrolled in any Advanced Placement class will take the corresponding AP Exam in May.
Because AP Courses are taught at a college level, excellent study habits and a strong foundation in the specific discipline are necessary for success. In order to register for an AP course, a student is required to have earned an A, B or C in the corresponding Pre-AP course with instructor/school counselor recommendation or an A or B in the designated regular class with instructor/school counselor recommendation. A waiver process is available for interested students not meeting these requirements. Students who register for AP courses must be committed to remain in the class for at least one semester. A student who is not experiencing success with the rigor of AP may request a transfer to a lower level corresponding class at the end of the first semester. However, any class change is contingent upon space availability.
Questions about AP courses may be directed to the individual instructor or to our AP Coordinator, Jennifer Beasley @ Jennifer.Beasley@okaloosaschools.com
