• ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM  - AP courses are established College Board course curriculums. Students receive high school credits for AP courses and may earn college credit with a successful score on the AP exam as determined by the accepting college or university. East Ridge High School fully supports the College Board policy regarding Equity and Access. While there are some minimum recommendations for entry into an AP course, students that are willing to commit to the hard work, time, and effort expected of a college course are encouraged to register.


    "We encourage the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented.  Schools should make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population....  It is only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access that true equity and excellence can be achieved." (College Board AP Equity and Access Policy)
