Advanced Placement courses prepare students to succeed in a college undergraduate environment. AP course are taught by teachers that have been specifically trained to teach these higher levels courses. As a student you are taking the next step to advance your academic standing, experience what college will offer you and immerse yourself in a subject area you choose.
Students choose AP courses outside their area of intended study because they can immerse themselves more deeply in the subject material. So even if you don't plan on pursuing Physics in college, an AP Physics course might be of interest to you!
Over 2,600 colleges world-wide recognize and give credit for qualifying AP scores.

The cost of an AP exam is $91. There are several ways that a student can reduce or pay for those exams:
1. Turn in your Federal Economic Data Survey, to see if you qualify for a substantial reduction in AP test fees. Students who qualified pay only $12 for per exam.
2. Centennial High School offers scholarships for students who might have trouble paying for their AP exam(s). These scholarships are not based strictly on need, and we consider students who are taking multiple exams, families with multiple AP students, students with temporary hardships, etc. We never want to see a student refuse an AP test based on the cost. Please have your student talk to their AP teacher, counselor, or Principal if they anticipate having problems with AP fees.
3. Our Alumni Foundation offers students help with AP fees if they sell alumni bricks for our courtyard. Know an alumni? Ask them to purchase a brick or even a tile from your AP student. Alumni can specify a student or just ask the funds be donated to the AP fund. A student who sells 2 bricks can earn $47 towards the cost of their AP exam. A student who sells a tile will earn $110 towards the cost of their AP exams. (any money remaining, can be donated to the AP fund or the Alumni Foundation).
