    Advanced Placement (AP) Boot Camp

    One way that schools and districts prepare students for the demands of Advanced Placement coursework is through the use of “boot camps” that take place in the summer preceding AP course enrollment. The ACPS boot camp is designed for first time AP students. The boot camp coursework helps students focus on the skills necessary to successfully complete a year in any Advanced Placement course. This goal is achieved through experiences designed to encourage teamwork, communication, organization, critical reading and writing as well as problem-solving. This virtual class is a two-week program. There are two sessions offered: July 6-17 and July 20-31.
