University Heights Academy is seeing big successes in Advanced Placement courses and test scores. 62% of all UHA juniors and seniors in 2011-2012(41 students) chose to enroll in one or more of the 8 Advanced Placement courses offered at UHA (Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Government& Politics, Language and Composition, Literature and Composition, Psychology, and U.S. History). These 41 students took a total of 66 AP tests. AP exams are scored on a 5 point scale with 3 or better considered qualified to receive college credit and advanced placement. Thirty-three scores were 3 or higher. All students taking AP Calculus scored 5 on their exams! AP teachers attribute student success to smaller class sizes, intense rigor of course material, and strong student work ethic.
