Feb. 8, 2019: Americus-Sumter High School has been named as an Advanced Placement (AP) Honor School for 2019 by Georgia School Superintendent Richard Woods. According to a press release sent out by the Georgia Department of Education Americus-Sumter High is recognized in two categories: AP STEM Schools and AP Challenge Schools.

Woods named 230 AP Honor Schools for 2019. “It’s essential that we offer a robust set of opportunities to Georgia students, and Advanced Placement is an important part of that,” Woods said. “I congratulate the educators and leaders who worked to create strong AP programs in these 230 Georgia schools, ultimately connecting students with high-level coursework and the opportunity to gain college credit.”  

AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high-school level; students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit. The 2019 AP Honor Schools are named in six categories, based on the results of 2018 AP courses and exams. A list of categories is below and a full list of schools in each category is linked in the description.

The Georgia Department of Education began recognizing AP Honor Schools in 2008. This recognition began with three categories: AP Access and Support Schools; AP Challenge Schools; and AP Merit Schools. AP STEM and AP STEM Achievement categories were added in 2011, and the AP Humanities category was added in 2015.
