Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement Courses are college-level classes that students take during high school.  They offer the opportunity to study a subject in-depth at the college level.  At the conclusion of the course, ALL Kiski Area students in an AP course take the corresponding AP Exam.  Students who earn a qualifying score on the AP Exam may be eligible for credit, advanced placement or both at most colleges in the United States. AP Exams are administered over two weeks in May. Please view the 2023-2024 AP EXAM SCHEDULE.
