Darlington’s Advanced Placement courses provide opportunities for advanced specialized coursework and college credit. A score of 3 or higher (out of a possible 5) often means the student is eligible to receive college credit or waive required college courses in the subject covered by the AP exam.
At Darlington, all AP students take the AP Exam, whereas it's often optional at other schools. In 2018, 259 Darlington students took a total of 619 AP Exams, and 91 students were recognized as AP Scholars by The College Board, including 11 National AP Scholars.
