Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) and Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) and Advanced Placement (AP) courses will challenge students with college-level material that enables them to successfully pass the Advanced Placement exam and receive college credit. Reading requirements include textbooks written on the college level in addition to outside reading assignments. These classes are rigorous with more depth and complexity. They require time management and a high degree of task commitment.

For more information on AP courses, visit the College Board's website.

A course description for all Pre-AP and AP courses can be found in GCISD's Course Selection Guide. This is a comprehensive guide that includes a lot of helpful information, such as (but not limited to):

  • All the courses offered in core content areas, foreign languages, and electives
  • Links to the middle school course selection guide
  • All the courses that count towards GPA and class rank
  • Career planning resources
  • How courses are weighted (Important note: GT courses are weighted the same as their Pre-AP and AP counterparts)
