Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors Course Access at ESAT
Despite being a small school, we pride ourselves in offering a large and ever-expanding number of advanced courses for students in the 9th-12th grades. In line with College Board’s emphasis on “Equity and Access”, all Advanced Placement courses are open to any interested students, without pre-requisite GPAs or teacher recommendations. We want all of our students to have ample opportunities to experience college-level rigor and prepare themselves for college success.
