Pre-AP at PLU
Pre-AP courses deliver grade-level appropriate instruction through focused course frameworks, instructional resources, learning checkpoints, and collaborative educator workshops. They are designed to support all students across varying levels of abilities through focus. They are not honors or advanced courses. The Program grants educators and their students the space and time for deep engagement with content.
Participating schools receive an official Pre-AP designation for each course and the opportunity to bring engaging, meaningful, foundational coursework to all their students across varying levels of abilities. This designation signals consistent, high standards in focused courses that help build, strengthen, and reinforce students’ content knowledge and critical thinking skills.
For more details about the program, go to the College Board website.
For those schools that are approved to offer Pre-AP, there is a professional development opportunity for your teachers. Pacific Lutheran University is hosting a summer institute for Pre-AP in 2020.
