I’m thankful to be studying such challenging courses. Taking AP's will help me seamlessly transition to university level classes and balance a heavy workload in the future. The topics I’m learning about in my AP classes will give me a base of important knowledge going into the ‘real world.’ I also know that this path will guarantee me acceptance to a great university.

How do you earn an Advanced Placement International Diploma?
The AP International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized award for students interested in international studies. It requires students to display mastery on AP Exams across several disciplines, and represents an exceptional level of achievement.
The APID is not a program like IB, and students do not apply for it. The APID is automatically conferred by the College Board in the year all eligibility requirements are met.
To earn an APID, a student must earn a grade of three or higher on at least five AP Exams in the following content areas:
- Two AP exams from two different languages selected from English and/or world languages.
- One AP exam designated as offering a global perspective.
- One AP exam from the sciences or mathematics content areas.
- One (or two) additional AP exam(s) from any content areas except English and world languages.
For extensive information on the AP International Diploma, please visit the official APID page.
There is a huge variety of AP classes compared to my last school, which I'm really thankful for. Next year I will be taking AP Statistics, AP Language and Composition and AP physics.

I'm an AP student. It’s definitely a challenging program but the classes are really well-rounded and the environment is supportive and the teachers really help you. I’m able to balance my academics with many clubs.
