Dual Credit Opportunities


    Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

    FHHS offers many AP courses. AP courses are college-level courses established through the College Board, and taught in high school classrooms. AP students are required to take the end-of-course AP exam in May. Students receive a score of 1-5 on their exam. Some colleges award credit for certain scores (typically a 4 or 5), but this varies at each college. 

    There is a fee for AP courses, but it is significantly reduced for students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch. 

    See the course catalog and master schedule on the homepage for AP course offerings.
