Advanced Placement. . .

The Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada (currently offered at Yale Secondary) that was created by the College Board offering college-level curriculum and examinations to high school students. American colleges often grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores above a certain number on the examinations. The AP curriculum for the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and college-level educators in each subject. For a high school course to have the AP designation, the course must be audited by the College Board to ascertain it satisfies the AP curriculum. If the course is approved the school may use the AP designation and the course will be publicly listed on the AP Ledger.

Apart from offering Advanced Placement classes, Yale has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence offering Honours courses throughout the grade levels.

Above Picture:  AP Chemistry students Sam Lee, Jayden Yoo, Andrea Wong, Jake Johnston and Nafeel Ahmad recently competed in the Trinity Western University Lab Skills Competition.  An academic scholarship exam was a large part of the evaluation.  Some ten teams from all over the Fraser Valley totaling nearly 40 students wrote the exam.  The Yale team members placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.  WHOA - some kind of super academic performance!
