AP and Honors Courses
For the 2019-20 school year, Jesuit High School is offering 26 Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Click here to learn about the tremendous development and success of Jesuit's AP program and its strong results in 2018 AP testing (84% pass rate), and tab down to view Jesuit's AP course offerings.
Decisions regarding student placement into AP and Honors courses are made by Jesuit High School faculty. Each academic department defines the criteria used, and student eligibility is determined in the spring of the previous school year. Students may decline a position in an AP or Honors course, and that decision must be made by the second week of June. Questions regarding AP and Honors placement should be directed to the head of the respective academic department. Criteria for AP and Honors placement can be found in Canvas under Family Information.
In 2016-17, Jesuit added the AP Capstone Diploma program with great success, as the juniors in the AP Seminar component of the program earned a 100% AP exam pass rate in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, Jesuit produced its second class of students who had received the AP Capstone Diploma.

More than 300 colleges/universities have credit policies for AP Capstone courses.
With more Jesuit students successfully completing AP exams every year, the number of AP Scholars has risen commensurately.

NOTE: The nationally administered AP exam is a course requirement for all AP classes at Jesuit. Students enrolled in an AP course may not opt-out of taking the AP exam for that course.
