At Queen City Collegiate, students may take Advanced Placement courses. An Advanced Placement course is equivalent to a first-year University course, and successful students receive advanced standing and/or academic credit at participating universities in Canada, the United States, and overseas. Advanced Placement courses are administered by an American organization, the College Board and are taught in over 13,000 schools worldwide. At QCC, the AP program further enhances our strong tradition of academic excellence.
AP courses will allow students to study areas in greater depth and to expand their intellectual horizons. By succeeding in an AP course and exam, they will know in advanced that they have the ability to succeed at university.
AP students challenge themselves and master university-level material while discovering the satisfaction of reaching goals and knowing success.
At university, AP students can often take second year courses after receiving credit for a qualifying AP score in a particular subject area.
Over 90% of the universities and colleges in the US and Canada, and post-secondary institutions in 20 other countries, accept AP grades for credit of advanced placement.
