The Honors and AP program is designed to challenge gifted students. As part of the Honors Program, Bishop England participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) and offers 13 AP courses. Because the Honors program and AP curricula require such intense study, students selected for this program must demonstrate maturity, learn at an accelerated pace, and review/complete assignments with a high degree of independence. They are expected to be capable of writing well-organized, analytical essays and to apply information in a way that goes beyond basic comprehension of the facts. They should be able to evaluate and synthesize information as well.
Bishop England High School is pleased to report that our students taking AP tests in the 2016-17 school year had a 92% pass rate, and 69% of those students earned a 4 or 5 on their tests. There were 280 tests given.
We offer 13 Advanced Placement classes for college credit:
