How do I qualify for Honors/AP?
Students wishing to enroll in honors courses with IVLA must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or a letter of recommendation from an instructor or counselor.
Students wishing to enroll in AP courses must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and meet all course prerequisites. Please contact an enrollment specialist for more information.
What are AP courses and how do I take the AP exam?
AP courses are college-level courses that are available to IVLA’s eligible high school students. Students benefit from taking AP courses in a number of ways. Taking AP courses can increase student GPA because AP courses are weighted higher on transcripts. Taking AP courses also demonstrates to college admissions counselors that a student has college-level academic skills. Students also have the opportunity to receive college credit (without paying for it) before entering college.
Once a student completes an AP course they are eligible to take the AP exam. The AP exams are administered by the College Board each May. Students must score between a 3 and a 5 to qualify for college credit(This is at the discretion of the college or university).
