AP Opportunities

Students who succeed in AP courses are more likely to succeed in college, and they can save money through credit-granting and placement policies. The AP Potential tool uses SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 scores to help you identify students likely to succeed in AP. In addition, student score reports recommend AP courses that might be good matches.
