Taking Advanced Placement (AP® ) courses and exams shows you can succeed with college-level work. And that’s just the start.
AP courses are fast paced, University level courses requiring strong reading skills and a commitment to independent learning. A high level of self direction is required. Students and parents will be asked to sign a contract confirming that they understand the level of study and commitment required.
Please note that the AP exam fee is responsibility of parents/guardians. The test fee is approximately USD $100-$190 per exam. Uchenna Academy does not have additional administration fees for the exam.
AP courses are designed to be the equivalent of entry-level university courses. The College Board’s AP Program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue university-level studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both — while still in high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam can typically earn students university credit and/or placement into advanced courses in university.
