BASIS Curriculum School students achieve Advanced Placement success.

While Advanced Placement® Exam scores are by no means the focus of our curriculum, we believe in high academic expectations for all students. To that end, AP Exam results are a useful measurement of our success in helping students achieve their academic goals.

Students earning 3 points or higher can successfully complete introductory-level college classes and are granted placement and/or credit at about 90% of four-year universities in the U.S.

2016 Advanced Placement Exam Results

Most American schools allow only top-performing students to take AP courses and AP Exams beginning in 10th or 11th grade, but BASIS.ed-managed schools require ALL students to participate in AP courses and testing beginning in 9th grade (and students can elect to take AP Exams even before entering high school). Despite being younger and in lower grade levels, BASIS Curriculum students perform exceedingly well on AP Exams when compared to their peers across the country.

Advanced Placement Performance over Time: The BASIS.ed Impact

A score of 3, 4, or 5 (on a scale of 1 to 5) merits a “pass” in the AP examination system. Our AP Passing Points calculation is the sum of the value of each passing score, measured across all BASIS Curriculum students taking AP Exams. The BASIS academic program continues to evolve and offers a wide range of students the opportunity to take AP courses and exams, beginning in 8th grade and spanning through their senior year. Our Advanced Placement success is apparent in the impressive growth of our AP Passing Points.
