Our Highly Succcesful AP Program

Central Catholic High School boasts an extensive, strong, and highly successful Advanced Placement (AP) Program.

324 CCHS students participated in the AP Program, taking 703 AP Exams in May 2017. Almost 60% of seniors took at least one AP exam.

Our students’ achievement is the result of their talents and dedication as well as the outstanding faculty mentoring they receive.

Central Catholic’s students significantly outpaced the national and state averages on AP exams and may receive credits by colleges upon review of their scores.
