BASIS Curriculum students achieve Advanced Placement success.

At BASIS Curriculum Schools, 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 who pass an AP Exam by earning a score of 3 or higher out of 5 can successfully complete introductory-level college.

Most American schools allow only top-performing students to take AP courses and AP Exams beginning in grades 10 or 11, but BASIS Curriculum Schools require ALL students to participate in AP courses and testing beginning in grade 9 (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 and around the globe.
