Advanced Courses: IB & AP
ASP is the only school in France to offer a broad selection of AP and IB courses concurrently. Both are advanced, challenging programs that help prepare students for college-level work.
FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR: AP/IB OPTIONS AT ASP: AN OVERVIEW
The Advanced Placement Program (AP)
The Advanced Placement program allows students to pursue coursework equivalent to first-year American college courses. Through such courses students can earn college credit and/or advanced placement in American universities and gain admission to many non-American universities.
Students can take AP exams in individual subjects in May of each school year.
The International Baccalaureate (IB)
Designed to accommodate students from a variety of educational backgrounds, the two-year International Baccalaureate (IB) program prepares for admission to the most competitive North American and international universities.
The curriculum is global, stressing serious academic research, critical thinking and oral presentation. Students have the option of choosing the IB Diploma or individual subject certificates. University credit can be awarded for top scores in Higher Level IB subjects.
In addition to six required courses, candidates for the Diploma take a course in the Theory of Knowledge, write a 4000-word Extended Essay, and complete a CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) program, which stresses experiential learning outside the classroom. Students interested in pursuing the IB Diploma or individual IB courses should discuss these options with their Counselor or the IB Coordinator in no later than March of 10th grade after the annual information meeting.
We are very proud of a strong tradition of excellent results. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the Assistant Director, Brian Brazeau.
For questions regarding the CAS program, please contact Mary Jean Lowe, our Service Learning Coordinator.
