Commitment to Model
The goal of the program is to strengthen the teaching of AP® mathematics, science, and English (MSE) courses (listed below), to build enrollment and dramatically increase rigorous new learning as evidenced by the number of students taking and earning qualifying scores on AP® exams in these important subjects. Selected schools and teachers agree to follow the same NMSI College Readiness Program Elements of Success now underway in dozens of public high schools across Kentucky (and several other states).
Eligible AP® Courses
Courses supported by AdvanceKentucky include AP® Math and Computer Science courses and exams in Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Computer Science A, Computer Science Principles, and Statistics; AP® Science courses and exams in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Physics 1 and 2, Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism and Physics C: Mechanics; and AP® English courses and exams in English Language and English Literature. The AP® Capstone Seminar and Research courses also may be eligible.
Submission of Application
Apply as a School
All interested schools may begin the application process by completing the application packet below. Completed applications should be sent to Anthony Mires attention at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apply as an Individual AP® Teacher
Scholarships for the College Readiness Program are now available to AP® teachers. This program follows the same Elements of Success utilized in the school-wide model and provides the same support for the individual teacher. Preference will be given to teachers that are in a position to initiate or dramatically grow their AP® programs in math, science, computer science, and English for underrepresented student populations AND have not participated in the College Readiness Program.
Teachers interested in training and support for the 2020-2021 school year, who will be teaching classes in AP® Math, Science, English, or Computer Science may apply. Applications will remain open year-round but the priority for the next cohort will be given to applications received by midnight, December 15, 2019.
Acceptance into Program
Eligible applications will be invited to negotiate a Letter of Agreement with the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation. Traditionally, a new cohort of schools and teachers is announced in the Spring/Summer prior to activities associated with the first full academic year in the program. This includes recruiting students, planning for any new AP® classes and AP® and Pre-AP® teacher training over the summer.
