The Advanced Placement Program is a United States exam–based curriculum that is accepted at over 3200 post-secondary institutions in the United States and has gained approval at many Canadian Universities. For example, McGill University grants university credits to students who have successfully written Advanced Placement examinations.
Some students take AP examinations throughout their high school career. Marc Garneau C.I. hosts many of the AP exams every year in May, meaning that all students in the school have the ability to register for and write the exams at school. MGCI is not available to students from other schools as a testing site. In most cases, the content of these exams is not covered in class; instead, students self-study their respective subject areas in preparation for the exams.
