What are Advanced Placement®* Courses?
Established over 50 years ago by the College Board, the academically challenging Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses are designed to offer able and motivated High School students access to US college-level academic material. The AP Program® is recognized by universities in more than 50 countries worldwide as a standard of academic excellence. Successful completion of AP courses provides students with the opportunity to earn credit and/or advanced placement for college.

The Advanced Placement International Diploma® (APID®)

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines. The APID is available to students attending high schools outside the United States. The APID is not a substitute for a high school diploma, but rather provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.


The Advanced Placement International Diploma consists of 5 courses

• Two different Languages (English & World Languages)

• One AP course with a global perspective (e.g. Human Geography)

• One Math or Science course

• One other course from any content area except English and World Languages
