ADvanced Placement Course descriptions
Advanced Placement courses are an important part of the college-preparatory program at Ursuline Academy. We are pleased to offer a robust catalog of Advanced Placement courses in so many disciplines and rightly take pride in the high exam scores earned by our students. Many of our students demonstrate an ability to navigate these College-Board approved courses during their secondary school years, following a passion for the subject and achieving personal growth through the rigorous demands of the curriculum. We want to challenge our students appropriately as they develop their academic skills and content knowledge. "Appropriately" is the operative word in the previous sentence! All of our courses are rigorous and prepare students for the work they will be doing in college classrooms, laboratories, and seminars. Many alumnae are capably working at competitive colleges without having had an AP course on their transcript. We care deeply about the whole Ursuline student, and course placement reflects our desire to ensure that a girl will not only survive but flourish while a student at the Academy.
