Apex Learning, known for digital curriculum that makes rigorous, standards-based content accessible to all students, continues the trend of outpacing national scores on the College Board AP exams. Last spring, 65 percent of students taking Apex Learning AP courses scored a 3 or higher on Advanced Placement (AP) exams, five percentage points higher than the national average of 60 percent for the same exams. Each year, Apex Learning students continue to outperform the national average.

"The results on the College Board exams demonstrate the efficacy of our AP courses,” said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO of Apex Learning. “When using our online courses, districts can have confidence knowing their students are well-prepared for the AP exams and college level coursework.”

Apex Learning offers 13 online AP courses, authorized by the College Board, and designed to support students and teachers working in both blended and virtual learning environments, including: Biology, Calculus AB, Chemistry, English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, Environmental Science, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Psychology, Spanish Language, Statistics, U.S. History, U.S. Government and Politics.

“Performing well on AP Exams means more than just the successful completion of a course; it is a gateway to success in college,” said College Board President and CEO David Coleman. “Research consistently shows that students who receive a score of 3 or higher on AP Exams typically experience higher graduation rates and greater academic success in college.”
