Advanced Placement (AP) Program

Important UPDATES during the COVID-19 school closure will be posted below!  
 
 
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are college-level courses offered on a high school campus. They not only provide the knowledge and skills to be prepared for college, by taking the AP course exam at the end of the year, students can earn college credit or advanced placement.

At Kalaheo, we have an open door AP policy which allows students who choose to work hard, cover more content at a faster pace, and who have the desire to spend outside of school time to be best prepared for college to take AP courses. However, in order to register for an AP course, both the interested student and their parent/guardian must attend the mandatory AP Student/Parent Informational Meeting on during registration week.  Date and time of the meeting is announced prior to registration in January.

At this meeting, the expectations of AP and individual course requirements will be covered. At the completion of the meeting, the SY 2020-2021 AP Pre-Enrollment Information Contract will be distributed. This contract is distributed after the parent/student attend the Informational Meeting. This contract must be signed by both student and parent AND stapled to the student's registration card by May 28, 2020.
