For years, independent schools have touted the number of AP courses offered as evidence of the school’s “rigor.” This position has eroded as “rigor” is a word that has lost meaning in this decade. In addition, the local public school often offers more courses and allows students to take more of them as the matriculate. In response, top independent schools are beginning to move beyond AP courses—and the response from colleges has been overwhelmingly positive.
This Webinar will explore the issues around AP courses, highlight the reasons a school may elect to move beyond them and begin to develop their own high-level courses that may have more weight in the college admissions game while providing better education to your students.
You’ll Cover These Topics:
- Explore the implications of doing so and relieve you of the myths that are perceived to handcuff schools
- Identify the signs you are “ready”
- Plant the seeds of what you might do instead
