Honors & Advanced Placement
DeLaSalle offers a variety of honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes that challenge students with advanced, college level material. Many Honors and AP classes require students to successfully complete prerequisites and earn department approval.
Advanced Placement Program (AP) courses are college-level courses offered in high school. AP courses reflect what is taught in introductory college courses. Students who do well on AP Exams can earn credit and/or placement into advanced courses in college. You may find a list of which colleges and universities accept AP scores for credit here.
At the end of the course, students take an AP exam in that subject area. The standardized exams measure how well students have mastered college-level course work. Students who take AP classes are required to take the AP exam in May.
Any student who wishes to prepare for an AP exam in an area not listed should see a teacher and counselor early in the year for advice on how to accomplish this goal.
Honors level courses cover the same material as college preparatory classes but at an accelerated pace and with more reading and writing components. Students may choose to take Honors level courses in nearly all academic subject areas:
