• COURSE LEVELS

    Regents courses are offered in English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science and Foreign Language. The Board of Regents of the State of New York establishes the course content and evaluates student progress through the administration of Regents examinations.

    Advanced Placement (AP) Courses are college Level courses offered to students who show the potential to succeed at the next level, are willing to put in the time and effort, and work well independently. An advanced placement examination is offered in May; students taking AP Level courses are expected to take the exam. Since Northeast College Prep is a College Board school, our students do not have to pay a fee to take AP exams.

    Advanced Placement courses and examinations are developed for the College Board by the ETS, a private non-profit agency in Princeton, New Jersey. The exams are administered in May in schools throughout the country. The examinations are graded on a five-point scale: 5=extremely well qualified, 4=well qualified, 3=qualified, 2=possibly designated colleges and their high schools. High achievement in these courses and on the exam may result in college credit and placement in upper-level college courses or both.
