Academics at Columbia High School

Advanced Placement Courses

Columbia High School seeks to make AP courses available to all well-qualified students with the goal of all college-bound students taking at least one AP course before graduation. Part of the fulfillment and the culmination of that course is the Advanced Placement exam. It is required that all students in an AP course take the AP exam in May. Students in AP courses are held to a high level of academic expectations. Because AP courses are at the college level, appropriate student behavior and maturity are required.
