AP Government Initiative

We are excited to announce that for the 2013-2014 school year all students in Academic Choice will be participating in a rigorous and meaningful AP Government course. Ever since its founding, the Academic Choice program has sought to increase the number of students at Berkeley High succeeding in college level coursework. This initiative allows us to take an important step towards our vision by ensuring that all Academic Choice students complete at least one AP class. There will be several opportunities open to all students designed to support and enrich their experience in AP Government and help them to succeed next year and beyond.
