Advanced Placement Credit

St. Francis Borgia Regional High School participates in Advanced Placement® (AP®). AP® is a rigorous academic program developed by the College Board. It provides academically prepared high school students the opportunity to study and learn at the college level. Each AP® course uses an AP®-approved syllabus that meets or exceeds college level curriculum requirements. AP® courses are assessed through an end-of-course exam, which is scored through the College Board. Borgia students may take any of the 34 AP® exams on the AP® designated exam dates (May of each year) and attempt to earn college credit based on the AP® score required by the university they plan to attend. Borgia offers the following College Board approved AP® courses:

  • AP® World History, AP® United States History, AP® English Language &        Composition, AP® Calculus AB, AP® Statistics, AP® Music Theory, AP® Literature and Composition and AP® Physics

For additional details on Advanced Placement®, go to or contact Manuela Schmitt, Borgia Advanced Placement® Coordinator.

Note:  Students who plan to use college credits earned during high school should contact the institution to which they want to transfer these credits as soon as possible to become familiar with transfer requirements at that institution.  Specific degree programs within educational institutions may have additional requirements for college credits to be accepted. Universities may require courses to be applied to a student’s major to be taken on their campus.
