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.
We offer the largest Advanced Placement program in our district as measured by the 30 AP courses offered across a variety of disciplines. 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 Diploma with AP designation 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.
