Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Students at Evanston Township High School are encouraged to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses so that they will experience rigorous, college-level work in high school. ETHS currently offers 27 Advanced Placement courses in six different departments. A complete list of courses is available in the Course Selection Guide. Students and parents are urged to read the AP course descriptions to understand the level of work expected. In addition, they are encouraged to seek advice from teachers, counselors, and department chairs about which AP classes would be the best fit with their high school program and their college and career plans.

AP Summer Assignments

Many ETHS AP courses have suggested or required summer assignments.  These assignments are meant to prepare students over the summer for the work they will be doing in the fall.  Support on these assignments will be provided at the AP Summer Camps.  The assignments are the beginning of the school's process to grow AP students throughout the year.  Please click this Summer Assignment Link for available assignments.


AP Summer Camps

August 2014

  • Career & Technical Education
  • English
  • Fine Arts
  • History & Social Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • World Languages

Each summer, ETHS offers AP Summer Camps in specific courses to prepare students for the AP experience so they can make a smoother transition into their AP courses during the academic year. AP Summer Camps are FREE and are open to students who are registered for specific AP courses.

Teachers of the AP courses facilitate the summer camps, and students will have opportunities to engage directly with the teachers and gain information they need to know to better ensure their success in their Advanced Placement courses. Students attending an AP Summer Camp can expect to:

  • learn specific course expectations
  • review and examine course materials
  • participate in and experience sample lessons
  • learn course-specific skills
  • learn ways to access additional support
  • review expectations and/or receive feedback on summer assignments (course dependent)
  • learn testing expectations and requirements
  • engage with teachers and students enrolled in the course
  • ...and much more.

 

AP Summer Camps are coordinated by the ETHS Student Support Office. For more information or for answers to your AP Summer Camp questions, call (847) 424-7043 or email Dale Leibforth at ethsap@eths202.org.
