Norfolk Collegiate School offers a variety of advanced-level courses to upper school students through the Advanced Placement Program. The College Board Advanced Placement Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and universities that allows high school students to undertake college-level academic work.
These classes give students the opportunity to show that they have mastered the advanced material by taking the AP exams. Students can receive credit, advanced placement, or both from thousands of colleges and universities that participate in the Advanced Placement Program.
Norfolk Collegiate AP course offerings are extensive for a school of its size. The latest College Board statistics indicate that slightly over one-half of the nation's 21,000 high schools offer at least one Advanced Placement course. The average participating high school offers six AP courses and administers 89 examinations. At Norfolk Collegiate, twenty courses are designed to prepare students to take twenty-two College Board examinations.
All of Norfolk Collegiate's advanced placement courses require instructor permission to enroll. These courses require students to take the College Board exam in May. For further information on Norfolk Collegiate School's Advanced Placement Program, please contact Mike Kaplan
