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 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.
