Is the Boot Camp required in order to take an AP class?
No, but students who take the Boot Camp can get more detailed explanations the types of assignments they will be given during the school year and a clearer grasp of the increased workload that is typical in an AP class.

What should students bring?

What courses are supported by the Boot Camp?
With our first boot camp in 2010, we started with European History AP for 10th grade and US History AP for 11th grade. We hope to expand the program as more teachers, parents and students see the benefit of the program. For the 2017 Boot Camp, only AP Euro will be available. APUSH students if you want your own boot camp, convince Mrs. Ott that you want it!
Are there any costs?
Not at the present time, but we may charge a nominal fee to cover some material costs, such as snacks. Currently the Boot
Camp has no funding from the school district.
When is the Camp?
There will be three sessions of three days each, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. - See above
How do students sign up?
First students must be accepted into an AP class. Information will be distributed at that time on how to sign up for the Boot camp session, additionally emails through School Loop will be sent to AP students. If you don't read your emails, don't blame us when you don't find out about stuff !!!
