Why Choose HGCS: Advanced Placement Classes Part 1

As parents make decisions about the high school education that their child will receive, most parents will agree that having a rigorous, established curriculum is important. Hickory Grove Christian School (HGCS) can provide that through our established Advanced Placement (AP) Program. Beginning in the 2018 school year, HGCS will offer 17 different AP classes. These courses include United States Politics and Government, United States History, Human Geography, Psychology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Statistics, Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics, English Language, English Literature, Computer Science, Art Studio, AP CapStone and AP Research

The latest addition to this list is the AP CapStone and AP Research Program. These two new classes allow students to investigate real-world topics of the student's choosing. Students will learn to collect and analyze information with accuracy and precision, develop arguments based on facts and effectively communicate them. Further, once students take and pass four additional AP Exams, then they will receive the prestigious AP Capstone Diploma. Students who earn 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research will receive the AP Seminary and Research Certificate. This diploma and the certificate is ONLY available to schools participating in the AP Capstone program and HGCS is a member of this prestigious program.

So as you make decisions about your child's school and compare HGCS with other schools in the area, consider a school which offers vast array of courses in many different areas. You will find that there are no schools in the area that can offer the range of courses that HGCS offers at the price that HGCS charges for its tuition.
