What is Advanced Placement (AP)?

Advanced Placement courses offer university-level content to students at the grade 12 level. Students in AP and pre-AP study topics in greater depth, enhancing their intellectual development. AP provides students with an opportunity for learning that goes beyond facts and figures. The rich course material, classroom discussion and demanding assignments typical of AP courses will help your child develop the knowledge and the critical thinking skills expected of university bound students.

RESOLVED, that the Halton Catholic District School Board will provide transportation to identified gifted student with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to an Advanced Placement (AP) Program, if one is not available in their catchment area if requested.

Students identified as gifted who are accepted into the AP Program, are eligible to request transportation if they live outside of our school catchment area.
