Woodson AP Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses meet a prescribed syllabus developed by the College Board. These courses represent college level study. Woodson offers coursework to prepare students for more than twenty AP exams. 

AP Courses are open to all students at Woodson. However, students who wish to enroll in an AP course without a recommendation from their current teacher in that AP’s respective subject will need parental permission. It is important that students make wise choices based on their time availability and what courses best suit them. Please refer to the AP Expectations to learn more about what students can expect from each course throughout the year.
