Empowering all students to learn, grow, and succeed.
Pre-AP courses, including Algebra 1, Geometry with Statistics, and Algebra 2, deliver grade-level instruction through focused course frameworks, instructional resources, classroom assessments for learning, and high-quality professional learning. They're designed to support all students across varying levels of readiness. They're not honors or advanced courses. The program components provide educators and their students the space and time for deep engagement with the most essential and relevant concepts and skills, and courses are backmapped from AP course expectations. Across Pre-AP courses, students experience shared instructional practices and routines that develop the critical thinking skills they need to success in AP and other college-level coursework.
Participating schools receive an official Pre-AP designation for each course and the opportunity to bring engaging, meaningful foundational coursework to all their students across varying levels of abilities. This designation signals consistent, high standards in focused courses that build, strengthen, and reinforce students' content knowledge and critical thinking skills.
