Advanced Placement Examinations
The College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) program is one of the three leading curricula available at grades 11 and 12 for international schools. Although requirements vary many U.S. universities and colleges waive courses and/or give college credit on the basis of AP exam results. APs are also increasingly recognized in Commonwealth and European countries. In 2010, Woodstock offered courses leading to AP exams in 14 subjects.
