ADVANCED PLACEMENT STUDIO ART

The three Advanced Placement Art courses enable highly motivated students to do college-level work in art while still in high school. Advanced Placement work does involve significantly more time and commitment than most high school courses. Therefore, the program is intended for students seriously committed to studying art. Prerequisites vary by course.

See the Johns Creek High School Website for AP Summer work.
