AP Program Update


Dominique Sena

Santa Fe High School’s AP program is blossoming. With 21 courses, the program allows students to take a college class and be eligible for college credit if they are able to get a score of 3, 4, 5 on the exam in the spring. According to AP lead teacher Mr. Eadie, student scores at Santa Fe High keep climbing.

But the College Board, which administers the AP program, is now having kids order the test in October instead of March and April, forcing kids to commit to the exam months before they will take it. The cost of the exam is $94, and for the parents and students who can’t afford it, the price is $3. 

There are many new things happening in the AP program. There is now an AP Environmental Science class, taught by Claire Noonan. Mr. Eadie is also trying to raise awareness of the new AP parent community, which plans on hosting game nights, making T-shirts, and working to have parents and kids have a stronger voice in the program.
