Master class Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) teachers help students in grades 10-12 work through AP courses to develop and apply the skills, abilities, and content knowledge they will need in college. Please review Enlightium’s AP Checklist for qualifications and prerequisites.
Due to the extensive workload associated with each AP course, students who wish to take multiple AP courses at one time should consider taking no more than two AP courses, unless approved by their Enlightium counselor. Each AP course is modeled after a comparable college course. AP exams that are administered by College Board in early May are an essential part of the AP experience, enabling students to demonstrate their mastery of college level coursework.
Students who pass an AP course but do not take the AP exam will receive credit for the AP course in their high school transcript only. To receive college credit for an AP course students must take the AP test and meet the score requirements. Successful AP exam scores are graded on a 5-point scale. A score of 3 is a passing grade, while a score of 4 or 5 is usually recognized by most colleges as a high enough score to receive college credit or waive a general course requirement. AP courses are accepted by most two- and four-year colleges and universities worldwide. Universities in more than 60 countries recognize AP exam scores in the admission process and/or award credit and placement for qualifying scores. Performing well on an AP exam means more than just the successful completion of a course.
Since exams for AP courses take place during the first two weeks of May, students are encouraged to begin working on them as early as July and no later than the beginning of school year. Enlightium Academy registration for AP courses ends at the end of September. College Board requires students to register for the exam as early as March.
Enlightium Academy school code: 481292.
AP courses are available with the Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond tuition support packages. Add-on charges will be scheduled within 30 days of class assignment. These add-on charges include the cost of books. The Accounting Department will reach out via email to arrange a payment. Discounts do not apply to AP or premium World Language courses.

The final score is reported on a 5-point scale; 3 is a passing grade. Although colleges and universities are responsible for setting their own credit and placement policies, AP scores signify how qualified students are to receive college credit or placement:
5 = Extremely well qualified
4 = Well qualified
3 = Qualified
2 = Possibly qualified
1 = No recommendation
For more information, visit http://www.collegeboard.org/apid (students). Students can find additional information on these score reporting services and awards in the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents, in the AP Student Pack and at http://www.collegeboard.org/apstudents.
Enlightium Academy will be assisting with the purchase of the primary required textbook(s) for Advanced Placement (AP) classes. On each course page, you will find a purchase link for the required textbooks with the best prices we have found. Note: a digital copy is a primary option for each textbook when available.
After the required textbook is purchased, please review the following reimbursement options:
All required textbook purchases will be reimbursed after the student has been enrolled in the course beyond the 14-day trial (see the "Dropping a Course" tab for more information).
Students will have a 14-day trial to determine if they would like to remain enrolled in the class; families should contact their counselor immediately if they would like to drop a course.
Enlightium Academy will not reimburse a course’s textbook purchased by the family if the student drops the course during the 14-day trial since any applicable add-on charge will be refunded if already charged.
If the course is replaced after the 14-day period, the course drop policy/withdrawal fee will apply on the add-on charge. Any amounts that have been reimbursed for books will be added back to the fee.
