  • Among "Schools with 200-400 Students", view the boarding schools with the most AP/advanced courses offered (2018-19).
  • For several reasons (listed below), these comparisons are intended only as informal reference points for evaluating the amount of advanced courses available at each school.
  • Schools may prefer to offer their own high level classes in place of the AP curriculum (i.e., schools may find that some subjects are better taught with their own curriculum).
  • Read more about why some prep schools choose not to offer AP classes.
  • These advanced courses are counted the same as an AP designated course.
  • Availability of AP or advanced courses may change depending on student interest in given year - alternatively, many schools allow students to prepare for an AP without offering the course through self-designed independent study.
  • As a result, small statistical differences between schools are generally not meaningful in determining whether a school offers more opportunities for advanced study.
