Advanced Placement

  • Advanced Placement (AP) is an internationally recognized program that allows students to take college-level courses in high school. BLHS offers Advanced Placement options to all students interested in pursuing a challenging course of study. Students may select AP courses in a variety of subject areas. Available AP offerings are designated on the Courses At A Glance pages. Additional information is available from BLHS counselors.

    Students in AP classes are encouraged to take the AP exams in the spring. Waivers for exam fees are available for those qualifying through the district’s free and reduced lunch program; see your counselor for additional information. Students who score well on the exams generally earn college credit, higher placement, or introductory course waivers. As universities have individual AP policies, it is important to check with prospective colleges to see how AP courses are credited.
