  Advanced Placement Program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Advanced Placement Program, commonly known as Advanced Placement, or AP, is a United States and Canada-based program that offers high school students the opportunity to receive university credit for their work during high school, as well as a standard measure of achievement in a particular course.
The not-for-profit College Board, which has run the program since 1955, develops and maintains courses in various subject areas, supports those who teach the courses, supports universities as they define their policies related to AP grades, and develops and coordinates the administration of annual AP examinations.
For example, the LAUSD currently provides Advanced Placement to students who enrolled in the free school lunch program to take AP exams at the cost of $5.
