The Advantage of our Advanced Placement Programme
Supported by the internationally recognised College Board (www.collegeboard.org
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 75 Saltus students sat 196 AP examinations and scored 3 or more in 82% of all exams taken. This is 20% above the international average, and 10% higher than the year before. 71% of the 2019 graduating class earned the AP Scholar designation or higher.
