AP scores are now available for you to access online. If you need more information about how to access your scores or need assistance sending your scores to colleges and universities, please visit the College Board at

The AP Program gives students a chance to experience college-level classes in high school and opens the door to earning college credit before ever setting foot on a college campus. You will get to dig deeper into subjects you love while building the skills and confidence you need to succeed in college.

Joliet Township High School offers a wide range of AP courses in all core subjects as well as the Arts, STEM, and World Language, each of which culminates in an optional exam in May. If you score a 3 or higher (on a scale of 1–5), you could earn college credit, skip intro-level courses, or both at thousands of U.S. colleges and universities. Earning credit in high school means paying for fewer credits in college. It also opens your schedule, allowing you to take more electives, pursue a second major, or study abroad.

Regardless of your AP Exam score, taking AP courses can have a positive impact on your college applications. Admissions officers know college faculty play a big role in developing AP courses, so they know students who took AP pushed themselves to take challenging, college-level courses. This is something colleges like to see.

Take some time to look through the AP courses we offer to see if any interest you. By taking these courses, you can find out what college work is like while you have the support of teachers you trust in an environment you know.
