AP Offerings

Students at Little Flower can enroll in Advanced Placement (AP) courses sponsored by the Collegeboard. Those enrolled in AP courses take a Collegeboard written exam in May. Students who earn a score of 3 or higher on the exams may earn college credit. It is each student’s responsibility to check with individual colleges and universities to see what specific schools will accept.

Students must meet all prerequisites to enroll in an AP course. See the LF Coursebook for prerequisite information for each class. All students who are enrolled in an AP course at Little Flower are required to take the AP exam scheduled in May to fulfill the requirements of the AP course.

The fee for each AP exam is set by the Collegeboard (in 2017 it was $93) and is payable in April. Students from low-income families may be eligible for a reduced fee.

Little Flower offers the following Advanced Placement courses in a classroom setting:

  • Biology

  • Calculus

  • English Language

  • English Literature

  • European History

  • U.S. History

In addition, AP Environmental Science is available via the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy (JVLA). Classes offered via JVLA are included in the student’s roster for one class period each day. Students taking a class through JVLA pay an additional $370 for a full year class or $265 for a single-semester class.
