Advanced Placement

AP is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion and hard work of students and educators. Last year, Bluffton High was the district’s top performer on AP exams, with 71 percent of our AP students scoring high enough for college credit.

Success on an AP exam is defined as an exam score of 3 or higher, which represents the score point that research finds predictive of college success and college graduation. 

     More than 90% of four-year colleges and universities in the United States grant students credit, placement or both on the basis of successful AP exam scores.
