AP World History: Modern Mon@8:00 AM EST


with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 8 am, runs for 30 weeks

The purpose of the AP World History course is to develop greater understanding of the evolution of global processes and contacts, in interaction with different types of human societies. This understanding is advanced through a combination of selective factual knowledge and appropriate analytical skills. The course highlights the nature of changes in international frameworks and their causes and consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. The course emphasizes relevant factual knowledge deployed in conjunction with leading interpretive issues and types of historical evidence. The course builds on an understanding of cultural, institutional, and technological precedents that, along with geography, set the human stage. Periodization, explicitly discussed, forms an organizing principle for dealing with change and continuity throughout the course. Specific themes provide further organization to the course, along with the consistent attention to contacts among societies that form the core of world history as a field of study. College world history courses vary considerably in the approach used, the chronological framework chosen, the content covered, the themes selected, and the analytical skills emphasized. The material that follows describes the choices the AP World History Development Committee has made to create the course and exam. These choices themselves are compatible with a variety of college-level curricular approaches. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP US History Mon@9:30 AM EST

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 9:30 am, runs for 30 weeks

The AP program in United States History is designed to provide students with the analytical skills and enduring understandings necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in United States history. The program prepares students for intermediate and advanced college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full-year introductory college courses. Students should learn to assess historical materials—their relevance to a given interpretive problem, their reliability, and their importance—and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship. An AP United States History course should thus develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in an essay format. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP English Language & Comp Mon@11:00 AM EST


with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 11 am, runs for 30 weeks

The AP English Language and Composition course is designed to help students become skilled readers of prose written in a variety of rhetorical contexts and to become skilled writers who compose for a variety of purposes. Both their writing and their reading should make students aware of the interactions among a writer's purposes, audience expectations, and subjects as well as the way generic conventions and the resources of language contribute to effectiveness in writing. This is a perfect SAT/ACT verbal (English) preparation course. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP Macroeconomics (Time TBA)


with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 30 weeks

AP Macroeconomics

BIG IDEA 1: ECONOMIC MEASUREMENTS (MEA) Economists construct measurements to monitor the state of an economy and evaluate its performance over time. Governments, firms, and citizens often use these measurements to help inform policy, business, and personal decisions.

BIG IDEA 2: MARKETS (MKT) Competitive markets bring together buyers and sellers to exchange goods and services for mutual gain. The simple model of supply–demand can be applied in different market contexts.

BIG IDEA 3: MACROECONOMIC MODELS (MOD) Macroeconomic models are simplified representations that depict basic economic relationships and can be used to predict and explain how those relationships are affected by economic shocks.

BIG IDEA 4: MACROECONOMIC POLICIES (POL) Government taxation and spending policies and central bank monetary policy can affect an economy’s output, price level, and level of employment, both in the short run and in the long run.

AP Microeconomics (Time TBA)


with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 30 weeks

AP Microeconomics

BIG IDEA 1: SCARCITY AND MARKETS (MKT) Limited resources and unlimited wants result in the need to make choices. In a market economy, the choices of buyers and sellers determine market prices and the allocation of scarce resources.

BIG IDEA 2: COSTS, BENEFITS, AND MARGINAL ANALYSIS (CBA) There are trade-offs associated with any decision. Making optimal decisions requires evaluating the additional costs and benefits of possible actions.

BIG IDEA 3: PRODUCTION CHOICES AND BEHAVIOR (PRD) Firms seek to minimize costs and maximize profits, which influences their production decisions in the short run and long run.

BIG IDEA 4: MARKET INEFFICIENCY AND PUBLIC POLICY (POL) Private markets can fail to allocate resources efficiently, and well-designed public policy can endeavor to promote greater efficiency and equity in the economy.

AP Capstone Seminar Mon@4:00 PM EST


with Mark Kover, M.S.

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 4 pm, runs for 30 weeks

AP Capstone is an innovative diploma program from College Board that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. AP Capstone is built on the foundation of two AP courses—AP Seminar and AP Research—and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study experienced in other AP courses.

In AP Seminar, students investigate real-world issues from multiple perspectives, gathering and analyzing information from various sources in order to develop credible and valid evidence-based arguments.

AP Seminar is a prerequisite for AP Research. Completing AP Seminar and all its required assessment components is necessary for students to develop the skills to be successful in AP Research. In AP Research, students cultivate the skills and discipline necessary to conduct independent research and inquiry in order to produce and defend their scholarly work. 

The AP Capstone program aims to empower students by:

1) engaging them with rigorous college-level curricula focused on the skills necessary for successful college completion;

2) extending their abilities to synthesize information from multiple perspectives and apply skills in new situations and cross-curricular contexts;

3) enabling them to collect and analyze information with accuracy and precision;

4) cultivating their abilities to craft, communicate, and defend evidence-based arguments; and

5) providing opportunities for them to practice discipline.

In 2022-2023 students will choose from two tracks: 

  1. Mark A. Kover, M.S. (STEM Topics)
  2. SocSci Instructor, M.A./PhD (Social Science topics)
