City Academy is proud to announce the addition of Advanced Placement AP® courses to our program offerings.

AP® is a program developed by College Board® that offers students the opportunity to take university-level courses while still in high school. AP® courses allow students to challenge themselves and deepen and enrich their learning in a specific area of instruction. Depending on their interests and strengths, students may enrol in one or more AP® courses.

“…she really started to flex her “intellectual muscles” at City.”
– Heather (parent)

Upon successful completion of the AP® course, students will achieve the Ontario credit and will also be prepared to write the standardized AP® examination. The AP® exams are offered every May. Students who perform well on the AP® exam may be granted placement and/or course credit at Canadian and American universities. Each university has its own policy regarding AP® courses. For information on the AP policies of Canadian universities please consult the following website: http://international.collegeboard.org/programs/ap-recognition/canada.

At present, the following AP® courses are available at City Academy:

  • AP Biology
  • AP Calculus AB
  • AP English Literature

Additional courses are being added.

This past summer we received many requests from parents wishing their son/daughter to complete a “tune-up” of a specific subject in order to ensure they are prepared for the next school year and/or semester.

This service can be offered to students on an individual basis in all subject areas. A subject “tune-up” requires approximately 15 hours at a cost of $1,100; however this estimation may vary depending on the ability of the student.

Phone the school to personally discuss your needs so that a program can be formulated to meet your individual needs.
