West Port is the only school in the county to offer both an AP Capstone Diploma Pathway and a Cambridge AICE Diploma Pathway to earning FREE college credit. At WPHS, we believe that every student should be able to choose the pathway that exemplifies their individual college and career goals. That is why the APEX Magnet Program provides such a variety of academic routes to meet the needs of all unique learners.
Research shows students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. The students who enter four-year colleges with credit from AP accelerate their path to graduation and build confidence for college success. And even for those who don’t earn college credit, AP coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.
