Advanced Placement Courses


AP logoThe Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum, administered by the College Board, consists of standardized courses which offer college-level curricula to high school students.  After completing an AP course, students take the AP exam in that subject, which may earn them credits and accelerated placement in college. Our partnership with Mass Insight Education has given us the opportunity to offer the AP Capstone Program where students can earn an AP Capstone Diploma. We are very proud to offer the following Advanced Placement courses at Doherty Memorial High School.
