Get College-Level Credits via FLVS

Advance Placement courses are a great way to get a jump-start on college credit. An AP course is a college-level learning experience designed for high school students entering grades 9-12.  These courses are used to calculate overall Grade Point Average (GPA) and typically count extra in the calculation. These courses are also available at no charge to Florida public school students, whereas they may have a tuition cost if taken in college. (S. 1003.02, F.S.)
