The Saltus Difference

Advanced Placement

The Advantage of our Advanced Placement Programme 

Supported by the internationally recognised College Board (, the AP Programme at Saltus encourages students  to engage in advanced discussions about complex issues; solve problems individually and collectively; and write clearly and persuasively. Students experience the discipline required for university level achievement which steels their resolve and enhances their confidence. 

Universities located in North America , the United Kingdom, and Europe look at AP exams as one of the indicators that qualify students for the rigours of post-secondary education. Students may even receive special designations from the College Board for excelling in these studies. 

Since 1975, Saltus has offered a robust and growing Advanced Placement Programme.

And Saltus students are indeed, excelling. In fact, last year 77 Saltus students sat 170 AP examinations and 71% of the students who took an exam scored 3 or higher.  Saltus students ranked 12% higher than the global average for scores between 3-5. In addition, 22 Saltus students were recognised by the College Board for outstanding results: 
- AP Scholar 
- AP Scholar with Honor 
- AP Scholar with Distinction 
Two students were also awarded the AP International Diploma. This is the top award from College Board for which students must score 3 or higher on 5 or more AP exams.
