The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school allowing motivated students to stand out from their peers in college admissions, earn college credit, skip introductory college classes, and develop college-level skills. Trinity Classical Academy currently offers 10 Advanced Placement courses. (In addition, we offer 26 Honors classes, which also get the same GPA boost that AP classes get.)
The College Board describes AP scores as follows: 5–extremely well qualified, A+ or A in an equivalent college course; 4–very well qualified, A-, B+, or B in an equivalent college course; 3–qualified; B-, C+, or C in an equivalent college course; 2–possible qualified; 1–no recommendation. To pass an AP exam, a student must receive a score of 3 or higher.
A total of 75 Trinity Students took 131 Advanced Placement exams in May 2017. The school's passing rate, determined by the percentage of students who scored 3 or more points out of a possible 5 on an exam, was 68%, which is above the state average of 62.3% and the national average of 60.3%.
