AP Focus Program
Boulder High School has been designated by the Boulder Valley School District Board of Education as an Advanced Placement (AP) focus school. The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and the colleges and universities.
As an Advanced Placement (AP) Focus School, Boulder High offers one of the most comprehensive programs in the state, with nearly 30 AP courses across multiple disciplines and grade levels. The AP program allows students the freedom to follow their passion, in whatever discipline(s) they choose. There are no specific set courses that must be taken for AP recognition at graduation.
We offer one of the largest Advanced Placement program in our district as measured by the nearly 30 AP courses offered across a variety of disciplines and multiple grade levels. The AP program allows students the freedom to follow their passion, in whatever discipline(s) they choose. There are no specific set courses that must be taken for AP recognition at graduation. Boulder High students undertake college-level academic learning in the AP courses, and are given the opportunity to show that they have mastered the advanced material by taking AP exams. Students can receive credit, advanced placement, or both from thousands of colleges and universities that participate in the Advanced Placement Program.
The Boulder High School AP Achievement Recognition Cord is a source of pride for many of our graduates and a source of encouragement for students to commit to a rigorous course of study. For more information on this, please see the BHS AP Achievement Recognition Cord Website.
