AP Program

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered to students who are qualified to study advanced material at an accelerated pace. AP exam results of a 3, 4, or 5, in some cases, may lead to a student earning college course credit at selected universities or being exempted from taking certain required university courses. All SMIC courses with the AP designation have been officially approved by the College Board Audit Review to establish official AP status.

All AP courses have prerequisites and most courses require an entrance exam. Placement is determined based on a student's proven ability to perform above the regular course average; demonstrated positive and eager learning attitudes, while upholding academic honor, demonstrating strong interest in the subject area, and problem-solving abilities, or having strong scores on the MAP test. Students who enroll in an AP course are required to take the AP exam in May.

In 2020, a total of 453 Advanced Placement examinations were taken by SMIC students, with 95.8% of results being scored 3 or higher with 3 being the minimum passing score.
