Advanced Placement

  • Advanced Placement (AP) is an internationally recognized program that allows students to enrich the Ontario Curriculum with the goal of achieving university accreditation while enrolled at Resurrection CSS.
  • Pre-AP courses are offered in grades 9 – 12.
  • AP courses are offered in grade 12.  They are audited by the AP College Board and include writing AP exams in May.

How Do Students Benefit?

  • Grouping highly able learners creates an environment where students can challenge each other and thrive.
  • Students will gain a wealth of experience and critical thinking skills that will benefit them all of their lives.
  • University credits may be awarded to students that perform well on their Grade 12 AP exams.

What Does AP Provide?

  • Topics and material studied in greater depth
  • Enriched learning opportunities
  • Thought-provoking discussion
  • Interaction with other motivated learners

The focus is not to create more work, but a different kind of work that challenges a student’s higher order thinking skills.

Who Should Consider AP?

  • Highly able learners looking to be challenged
  • Students with a passion for learning
  • Self-motivated learners with strong communication and analytical skills.

Grades are only one of the many factors that help determine a student’s suitability for AP.
