Advanced Learning

Apex Learning Virtual School (ALVS) offers advanced learning options for students looking to take the next step in their education. Enroll your student in our rigorous honors-level courses—and College Board-approved Advanced Placement® (AP) courses—to help them prepare for college and beyond.

AP® and Honors Courses at ALVS

Apex Learning honors and AP courses are both designed to provide rigorous and challenging educational opportunities for high school students. The key difference between them is the level of difficulty and the potential for earning college credit:

Honors Courses feature content and course work that is more advanced than standard classes, and they are intended to prepare students for college-level studies. 

AP Courses go beyond honors classes by teaching college-level material, and culminate in a standardized exam that students can take to earn college credit. 

Whether your child is aiming to boost their GPA, get ahead on college credits or just looking for a more in-depth learning experience, Apex Learning honors and AP courses can help them achieve their goals.

Elevate Your Learning and Prepare for College

Challenge your student to enhance their skills, and help set them up for success on their path toward graduation and college. 

Enhance Your Transcript

AP and honors-level courses can improve the strength of your student's transcript and help their college applications stand out.

Earn College Credit

Your student can earn college credit by completing an AP course and passing the exam—which can lead to early college graduation and lower tuition costs.

Access to Courses Not Offered at Your School

Regardless of your geographic location, you can choose from our catalog of AP and honors courses that may not be offered at your local school.

Work With Certified, Experienced Teachers

Our experienced educators have a deep understanding of the AP curriculum and exam requirements, and help prepare your student for the test.
