The AP Program currently offers more than 30 courses across multiple subject areas. Each course is developed by a committee composed of college faculty and AP teachers, and covers the breadth of information, skills, and assignments found in the corresponding college course.
AP courses are taught by highly qualified high school teachers who use the AP Course Descriptions to guide them. The Course Description for each discipline outlines the course content, describes the curricular goals of the subject, and provides sample examination 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.
Centennial High School is proud to offer a wide range of AP courses to students in all 4 grade levels. Students interested in taking AP courses should look at the Course Catalog for options or speak with their Guidance Counselor. On this page, students and parents can find information about Advanced Placement Courses offered by College Board and taught at CHS.
Registration (see updated information as of August, 2019)

Stand out in College Admissions
College application season can be an anxious time for you, your family and just about everyone who cares about you. You’ve worked hard and done your best, but how do you know you’ve got the academic experience that colleges are looking for?
· By making the decision to take an AP course, you’re letting colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. AP courses signal to admissions officers that you’ve undertaken the most rigorous classes your high school has to offer. They see that you’ve challenged yourself with college-level course work and expectations, and have refined your skills to meet these expectations. In the increasingly competitive admissions process, this knowledge can be very valuable.
· AP courses offer admissions officers a consistent measure of course rigor across high schools, districts, states and countries — because all AP teachers, no matter where they’re teaching, have to provide a curriculum that meets college standards. So when admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they have a good understanding of what you experienced in a particular class and how well it prepared you for the increased challenges of college.
