Triple C School has been approved to offer the Advanced Placement programme after a rigid examination by the College Board of the syllabi presented.
Students who take an AP course and pass the external examination are awarded university credits in universities and colleges throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Launched this year by Principal Dr. Anthony Husemann, who is a trained AP coordinator and science instructor, the programme is being offered initially in Biology and English.
Five additional courses are being developed for the 2009-2010 school year. All teachers offering the courses have to undergo special Advanced Placement training provided by the College Board.
Some students may enter college or university with second year standing, depending on their scores.
‘I have worked for a number of years with the AP program and I know the boost it gives students in both preparation and confidence,’ said Dr. Husemann.
‘It contributes significantly to students’ academic development in all areas. It is definitely a good move for our college bound students.’
