Advanced Placement at CHS

  • Coconino High School offers a vibrant and rigorous Advanced Placement program. We offer 17 AP certified courses as well as many Honors courses. Coconino also offers Dual-enrollment and a variety of other specialized programs.


    All AP courses are taught at the college level within a high school framework. AP courses are aligned to the College Board curriculum and designed to prepare students for success on the AP exam, which can earn them college credit.  These courses teach higher-level thinking skills, require independent study, and allow students to experience the atmosphere and expectations of a college course.
    AP students are proficient readers who are able to organize their time and who have parent/ guardian support. Students who struggle with an AP course are expected to commit themselves to a greater effort and seek regular support services that should include tutoring from their teacher.
