Advance Placement Courses
Our school has earned the College Board's AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women’s access to AP Computer Science Principles (CSP). This award acknowledges our school for our work toward equal gender representation during the 2019-20 school year. Astor is one of only a handful of schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in CSP.
Taking AP courses in high school could give you an advantage in college by letting you:
1. Earn College Credit
Your AP score could earn you college credits before you even set foot on campus.
2. Earn Advanced Placement
Your AP score can let you skip introductory courses.
3. Save Money and Time
Earning credit or placement can open up time on your schedule or even let you graduate early.
4. Stand Out to Colleges
"AP" on your high school transcript shows colleges you've tackled college-level work.
Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States grant credit and placement for qualifying AP scores. Research consistently shows that AP students are better prepared for college than students who don't take AP. They are more likely to enroll and stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate in four years.
