Pre-AP for International Schools and U.S. Territories
What are the benefits of Pre-AP?
- Listing in College Board’s official Pre-AP Course Ledger: Internationally respected, the official course ledger lets colleges know that your school has fulfilled all the implementation commitments for Pre-AP.
- Increased success with AP: Pre-AP courses were back-mapped from AP courses so that students could progress to an AP program with confidence and an increased chance of success.
- A robust menu of professional learning: The Pre-AP program provides digital access to the kind of professional learning opportunities that help you attract and retain the best teachers, coordinators, and administrators.
Are Pre-AP implementation commitments the same?
Yes, international Pre-AP schools make the same commitments as the schools within the the 50 U.S. states. There are no special requirements for international schools or U.S. territories.
What are the restrictions when Pre-AP is taught outside the U.S.?
Due to shipping restrictions, schools located outside the 50 U.S. states are limited to digital-only instructional materials—that’s the only restriction.
