AP Courses & University Credits
Students have the opportunity to challenge themselves with college-level courses offered by our extensive AP Program with the College Board and by our dual-enrollment program with Syracuse University.
Central Catholic High School boasts an extensive, strong, and highly successful Advanced Placement (AP) Program.
This year CCHS has been chosen by the College Board as one of the select schools in Massachusetts and New Hampshire to offer the AP Capstone Diploma.
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.
95 Central Catholic Students were named Advanced Placement Scholars by the College Board’s AP Program, including 7 National AP Scholars, in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the 2017 Advanced Placement exams.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.
Please note: the awarding of college credits is solely at the discretion of the college or the university students choose to attend.
