Advanced Placement

Make the most of your high school experience and earn college credits with our Advanced Placement (AP) program at Fort Vancouver High School.

Advanced Placement courses are designed to be the equivalent of college-level work. Ninth- and 10th-graders can enroll in pre-AP courses, and 10th-graders also may enroll in a limited selection of regular AP courses. Eleventh- and 12th-grade students may choose from a full range of AP courses. Students who enroll in these classes should expect to engage in challenging work, independent research, critical thinking and readings and assignments outside of class.

Why take an AP class?

  • Studies have shown that students who take AP classes are better prepared for college than students who have not participated

  • College admissions offices look favorably at students who have completed AP classes.

  • Students who successfully pass an AP test will receive college credit at most colleges and universities.
