Advanced Placement Courses
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses were developed by College Board for schools in the U.S. and Canada. AP Programs allow many of our high schools to offer college-level courses to students. If a student earns a qualifying score on an AP Exam, they can receive credit for the corresponding course at most accredited colleges and universities in the United States and around the world. Students who participate in the AP program are viewed favorably by college admissions boards and enjoy the flexibility to explore their prospective fields of study earlier rather than later.
At Metro Nashville Public Schools, we strive to prepare our students for the challenges and demands of the “real world.” We focus on giving our students the skills they need to excel in higher educations, and in their professional lives. Our AP course offerings play an important role in how we do that for our students.

However, right now students must choose from the AP courses that are offered through their school.
