Bishop McNamara Advanced Placement Program offers rigorous college-level curricula and assessments to students in our high school, bringing a rich college experience to Bishop McNamara with the opportunity to earn college credit at thousands of universities across the nation. AP Courses are offered in English language, English literature, digital art, calculus, statistics, computer programming, psychology, chemistry, biology, physics, French, Spanish, U.S. history and European history. Advanced Placement courses may also be offered in music theory, Latin Vergil, Latin Poetry, and modern & classical language literature, as well as others determined by student interest.
AP courses are taught by highly qualified Bishop McNamara teachers who use the AP Course Descriptions to guide them. The course descriptions outline the course content, describe the curricular goals of the subject, and provide sample exam questions. While the course descriptions are a significant source of information about the course content on which the AP Exams will be based, AP teachers have the flexibility to determine how this content is presented.
