Students who have mastered challenging course material may gain college credit for their efforts by taking the AP exams
. Earning a score of 3 or better (on a scale of 1 to 5) on an AP exam means a student is generally considered qualified to receive credit for the equivalent course at one of the 2800 colleges and universities that give credit for AP exams. The entering college student who has been given AP recognition can take advanced courses, earn credit toward undergraduate work, or be positioned to pursue double majors.
AP exams are administered at Silver Creek during the first two weeks of May.
