Advanced Placement (AP)

Parent Letter (Click here)
"Able, interested students are given opportunities to do college level learning and achievement through Advance Placement (AP) courses and examinations. The AP curriculum is tailored to topics and skills needed to pass the AP examinations which are given each year in May. A college level textbook and a specified AP curriculum are used. Many colleges and universities grant college credit and/or grades to students who successfully pass AP exams. (Quote from EPISD Guidance Dept.) Pre-AP courses are challenging and prepare students for AP courses.

AP Exam Scores
Scores from 2019 AP exams will be available Saturday, July 8. Access your scores here.
- You will need your AP number (found on the Student Pack we asked you to keep). You should also be able to access scores using your Franklin ID number.
- If you don't already have a CollegeBoard account, you will need to create one in order to access your scores. This one account will be used for AP, PSAT, and SAT, so you will want to keep track of your login and password.
- If you have trouble with your account, you will need to contact CollegeBoard at 888.225.5427 or at email@example.com
AP Exams and college credit/placement
Earning a score of 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam MAY lead either to college credit or to placing out of a prerequisite course at your college. The more selective the university, the less likely you are to earn credit (though placement is still an option in some instances). In Texas, with the passage of HB 1992, all public colleges will award credit for a score of 3 or higher on AP exams.
- To find out exactly what credit will be awarded (at any college/university), the best resource is the school's website (try a Google search for the university name plus the words "AP credit" and you should find it easily).
- You can also use CollegeBoard's AP Credit Policy search tool.
If you are a senior, you might explore the AP credit policies at the schools you are applying to; depending on what you learn, you might decide to not take the AP exam to save some money and some stress.
