Advanced Placement

What are AP courses and exams?

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous academic programs that may permit a student to enter college with advanced standing. These year-long classes allow students to study a subject area at the college level.  Advanced college standing is awarded based upon the results of the AP exams.  Each college and university has their own standards for AP acceptance, students should review the policies of the post-secondary institutions they might attend prior to registering for an AP class.

When are AP exams scheduled?

Exams are scheduled annually during the middle two weeks of May. Each exam lasts three hour and is administered from 8-11 a.m. or 12-3 p.m.

HCS School Temporary Closure Announcement

Governor Wolf Gov. Tom Wolf has announced that all K-12 schools in Pennsylvania will be closed for 10 business days due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Beginning Monday, March 16th, Harrisburg Christian School will be closed for two weeks and will make the transition to “distant learning”. It is important to note that Harrisburg Christian School does NOT have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, in order to keep students’ academic skills sharp and to eliminate disruption of the educational process, students will have assigned schoolwork. Early next week, students will be given 3 “vacation days” (Monday – Wednesday) while faculty and staff meet to implement our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to thoroughly explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
