General Information
North County High School has a well established Advanced Placement (AP) Program. If you are looking for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college then our AP Program is for you! Through AP’s college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the admission process, and learn from some of the most skilled, dedicated, and inspiring teachers at North County High School.

A Different Kind of Class
From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you’ll notice the difference—in the teacher’s approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you’ll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Find Your Passion
With over 20 AP courses to choose from you’ll be able to explore your interests and discover new passions. In AP classes, you’ll study fascinating topics and ideas that just might become the foundation of your future college major or career.

Prepare to Succeed in College
AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you’ll need to be successful in college. You’ll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits.

Earn College Credit and Placement
More than 90 percent of four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double-major or study abroad.

How Do I Enroll?
Talk to your counselor, AP teacher, any of your current teachers, or your administrator at North County about the course you want to take. Select at least one or more AP courses on your registration form. Remember, we believe you can do it!
