Advanced Placement at BBCHS


    BBCHS is committed to offering students with opportunities to earn college credits while they are still in high school. Our ultimate goal is to set our students up for success to walk out our doors with the skills and toolbox to excel in whatever life after BBCHS has for them.

    We are proud to offer more than 20 AP courses to our students. These classes are rigorous, mirroring college-level work, and successful completion prepares the students for a corresponding Advanced Placement examination. The AP exams are given every spring in every AP subject, each presents the opportunity for three or more early college credits. Students who earn a score of "3" or higher on the 5-point exam are guaranteed college credit at any public state college or university in Illinois. Additionally, colleges across the nation accept AP credit; however, the scores they use to determine credit may differ by subject and institution.
