Get to Know Pre-AP
- Explore our informational videos and FAQs.
- Read the commitments schools make when they offer Pre-AP: Pre-AP for All, course frameworks, assessments, and professional learning.
- Make sure you know your school’s Pre-AP coordinator. They’ll act as your point person for the program.
- Familiarize yourself with your Pre-AP course frameworks.
- Meet with colleagues to plan how you’ll use current curricular resources to align to the framework. The framework is not a curriculum.
- We recommend you review course frameworks for all Pre-AP courses at your school—even for subjects you don’t teach—so that courses can support each other instructionally.
