For students seeking an enriching and challenging academic experience, the Advanced Placement (AP) program is an excellent choice. AP offers motivated students an exciting opportunity to pursue university-level studies in the high school setting.
Through AP, students gain knowledge, academic skills, and personal confidence. AP is intellectually demanding, but well within the capacity of Southridge students. Success in the AP program may lead to advanced standing, course credit, or both, on entry to university. The Advanced Placement program is fully recognized by the Ministry of Education of British Columbia and is an integral part of the BC graduation program. Our current AP courses are as follows: AP Calculus (AB and BC), AP Chemistry, AP Microeconomics, AP English Literature and Composition, AP European History, AP French Language, AP Human Geography, AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, AP Biology, AP English Language and Composition. At the time of printing, AP European History, AP Human Geography, and AP Microeconomics do not meet the Social Studies graduation requirement by the BC Ministry of Education.
