RESULTS

From 2008-2018, Alabama led the nation in percentage growth of qualifying AP scores in math, science and English for students overall, and was third in the nation for minority student success. To continue this growth, we’ve added support for the new AP Computer Science Principals course. Also, we now provide support for social studies educators and students to expand learning opportunities across the curriculum.

The majority of the 85 districts that we serve have significant numbers of children living in poverty. To reach these students, A+ College Ready has recently expanded to a number of these schools to provide support to those who do not have the resources to offer AP courses.
