Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
Have you tried to find courses that focus on preparing you individually for an Advanced Placement exam without compromising a biblical worldview? Not easy, right? We develop our AP-certified (approved and certified by the U.S. College Board) courses with both standards in view. All of our AP courses consist of two live classes per week of instruction, with a teacher certified to teach that AP course and also committed to bringing in the biblical worldview that the AP standard leaves out. The teachers also help each student build a plan and get ready for the test. With TPS AP you can finally have it all: courses that are AP certified, taught from a biblical worldview, with individual assistance and feedback for your student's preparations.

How effective are TPS AP courses in preparing for AP exams? TPS average scores on each test are usually in the upper 1/3 of the national scores for each exam, and often much higher. Students who complete our certified AP courses predominately earn 4's and 5's on the corresponding AP exam, with 5 being a typical score.*

*TPS has several sources for this data: We survey our students after the exams to find out their scores, and we query the College Board for the scores. Because College Board data relies on students entering the correct school code into their exam score sheets, the College Board data for TPS is incomplete and inaccurate, since home educated students tend to be given inconsistent instructions at testing sites (the College Board acknowledges the problem, and says they are seeking a better solution to support home education and on-line AP courses). TPS also independently analyzes all of the national AP scores and subscores (data is released by the College Board after each exam cycle) to statistically assess TPS scores and subscores on each exam.
