What is the Advanced
Placement Program?


AP gives students an opportunity to take college-level courses and exams while still in high school. Students enjoy the challenge of taking AP courses with enthusiastic classmates and teachers; high school faculty find that AP courses enhance their student’s confidence and academic interest as well as their school’s reputation; and college faculty report that AP students are far better prepared for serious academic work. (College Entrance Examination Board

During the 2017-2018 school year, Cherry Creek High School offered 28
different courses in six departments, with 1,095 AP students taking 2,370 exams.
