The Advanced Placement (AP) program is one of several Student Success initiatives offered at Trillium Lakelands DSB. It provides students with opportunities to pursue university level studies while in high school. AP courses are designed to challenge, stimulate and engage students with a keen interest and ability in a number of subject areas.
Students demonstrate their scholastic achievement on international exams, excel in their high school programming, improve their chances of being accepted by the university of their choice, and gain exemption from some introductory course work at university.
The AP program is an excellent preparation for continued success in post-secondary studies and ensures a smooth transition to university course work.
