AP courses provide students the opportunity to engage in college-level studies with the option of taking the AP exam to possibly qualify for college credit. Research indicates that students who participate in an AP course are more likely to complete an undergraduate program, choose academically challenging majors in college and are prone to pursue an advanced degree. Katy ISD offers AP courses in English, social studies, science, mathematics, foreign languages, computer science, music, and art.</p><p>This presentation can also be found on the <a href="/dept/GT/Pages/KAP_AP_DualCredit.aspx" target="_blank">GT & Advanced Academics website</a> . </p><ul><li><p><a href="/dept/GT/Documents/KAP-Awareness.pdf" target="_blank">Access the English presentation</a>.</p></li><li><p><a href="/dept/GT/Documents/KAP-Awareness-Spanish.pdf" target="_blank">Access the Spanish presentation</a>.<br></p></li></ul></div>|
