Advance Placement (AP COURSES)

Vaughan College offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses because it is in line with the aim and philosophy of the school. Students are given an option to choose from one or more courses that provide an opportunity to study at the highest level. These courses are designed for highly motivated students who want to learn about certain subjects in more depth, and who want to demonstrate to potential universities and colleges their willingness to take on academically rigorous courses. AP courses are subject to a standardized test scheme, and students can choose to write the Advanced Placement Examination, which means students may earn a university credit or advanced standing at certain universities and colleges across Canada and the United States. Students decide in grade 11 whether or not to enroll in AP courses. . For more information on how Canadian universities transfer AP credits, go to
