Advanced Placement

Benson High School

The AP Program ®

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® is a nation-wide cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools, colleges, and universities. Since its inception in 1955, the AP Program has provided motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the Program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they earn college credit while they are still in high school. Dedicated and enthusiastic high school teachers, following course guidelines developed and published by the College Board, teach AP courses. The Program’s success is rooted in the collaborative efforts of motivated students, dedicated teachers, and Benson High School. By participating in the AP Program, Benson High students make a commitment to the rigor and challenge of college-level courses.  The AP program, available for qualifying students, enables students to do college level work and earn college credit by examination.
