Counseling and Advising
The Advanced Placement Program gives students an opportunity to take college-level courses and exams while they are still in high school. Through this, they may earn credit, advance placement, or both for college. Students earn a score from 1-5 on each exam. Please contact individual colleges and universities to learn more about their individual policies regarding what scores will earn you credit; many institutions will accept scores of a 3 or higher.
Edina High School offers 25 AP (Advanced Placement) courses. Students can choose to register for any of these classes, provided that they feel they are ready and dedicated. These courses are taught with national level standards in preparation to take the corresponding AP test in the spring. In addition to the AP classes, EHS also offers a number of Enriched classes that will prepare students for the AP test. In the 2019-2020 school year 1,176 students took 2,216 AP tests, with 86.7% scoring a 3 or higher.
AP examinations remain a very beneficial way for your student to attempt to earn college credit as well as take advantage of the opportunity to learn and test at the collegiate level.
