Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by College Board that offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students. AP courses are invariably more rigorous than other high school offerings. American colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on the AP examinations. According to the Utah State Board of Education, a recent United States Department of Education study shows that participation in AP and other challenging high school courses is one of the strongest predictors of college success.
