Most AP/Advanced Courses Offered

Among "Schools with < 200 Students", view the boarding schools with the most AP/advanced courses offered (2024).
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.
