Welcome to AP® Chemistry

"The College Board is committed to the principle that all students deserve an opportunity to participate in rigorous and academically challenging courses and programs. All students who are willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic curriculum should be considered for admission to AP® courses." (Advanced Placement Report to the Nation 2005, The College Board)

AP® Chemistry is the equivalent of an introductory college-level chemistry course. It has both the content and the laboratory components of college chemistry. By the end of the course, students will be prepared for the AP® Chemistry Exam.

AP® Chemistry:

  • Is a College Board audited and approved AP® Chemistry course
  • Has a college-level hands-on Lab
  • Follows the College Board standards for AP® Chemistry
  • Uses a College Board recommended college textbook
  • Features an online interactive communication suite
  • Provides a confidential up-to-date online gradebook

AP® Chemistry is taught by a caring, knowledgeable and award-winning teacher with over 30 years experience teaching high-school science including Honors Chemistry and AP® Chemistry.

We provide an academically challenging, high-quality, full-year AP® Chemistry course with a hands-on college-level chemistry lab experience at home. Our AP® Chemistry course is a rigorous first-year college level class designed to prepare students for the AP® Chemistry Exam. The course is not just an exam review or prep! It is a comprehensive College Board authorized college-level chemistry course. We follow the College Board syllabus for AP® Chemistry and use an internationally recognized college text.

Our course includes weekly assignments, custom study sheets, specific material from the text and regular lab work as required by the College Board. An online discussion board is used by students, teacher and teacher assistants to discuss chemistry topics in a safe, secure environment.

In conjunction with the assignments in this course, students use an online, interactive homework and test program. This customized learning environment provides a rich, unique learning experience. Short answer, numeric and multiple-choice questions are immediately graded to provide instant feedback. Molecular structural drawings are also immediately graded. Students know right away if they've done a problem incorrectly and can correct it for resubmission.

Over 250 universities, colleges and academies use this interactive web assignment program -- including California-Berkeley, Chapel Hill, Notre Dame, Auburn, Georgetown, Rensselaer Polytechnic, Rutgers, Texas A&M, United States Air Force and United States Military and Naval Academies.

A hands-on lab is an integral part of this course. You will perform college-level lab experiments and produce a comprehensive lab notebook both of which are AP and college requirements.

Student grades will be available from a secure, online grade book to give students and parents a real-time view of progress.

When you have completed this course in May, you will have learned first-year, college-level chemistry, prepared for the AP® Chemistry exam and experienced first-hand the joy that is chemistry.
