AP Advanced Placement Program

Millikan AP Program

 

More than a million high school students nationwide are enrolled in AP courses (up 200,000 since 2000). Once seen as an opportunity for ‘gifted students’ only, the rigor of AP can be a valuable experience for any college-bound student. These courses give students an opportunity to study a subject in-depth at a college level.

Research supports the contention that students benefit from exposure to college-level coursework in high school. One federal study found that 59 percent of those who took one AP course later graduated from college, compared to only 33 percent of students who didn’t take an AP class. For students who took two or more AP exams, the college graduation rate was 76 percent.

 

Advanced Placement classes are open to all Millikan students regardless of the SLC (Small Learning Community) they belong to.  We have increased the number of AP courses available over the last few years.  Now Millikan students have 24 different options to choose from. Our most recent additions include Physics and Music Theory. 

 

At the conclusion of an AP course, students have the opportunity to take the corresponding AP Exam.  AP exams are two to three-hour exams, given in May and made up of multiple-choice and free-response (essay) questions. They are graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with a 3 considered a qualifying score to show mastery of the content.  Students who excel in passing AP exams may be identified as AP Scholars, a national recognition.

 

There is an exam fee of $93 per exam taken.  However, Long Beach high school students pay only $15 per exam, with a $10 refund once completed.

 

Millikan offers a summer “AP Bridge” program that is open to any student enrolled in an AP class. This weeklong experience helps to prepare students for success in their AP class by emphasizing writing, study skills, time management, effective note taking, and test preparation.
