AP® Courses
Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses provide college-level curriculum developed by College Board, makers of the SAT, to high school students. Students are taught the course by Bishop Guilfoyle teachers during the regular school day.  All students must take the AP exam at the end of the school year.  The college that the student attends will review the exam score(s) and may grant the student college credit for their AP score(s).  Typically, colleges that award college credit for an AP exam score require a score of a 4 or a 5.  You are encouraged to check with your college to see how credit is earned through AP tests.
