To continually enhance alignment with current best practices in college-level learning and help students develop the knowledge and skills essential for college majors and subsequent careers, the College Board is making a number of key changes to its Advanced Placement (AP) courses. This includes the redesign of several courses in each discipline and the introduction of new courses over the next few years. The Advances in AP website is designed to support AP teachers and other K–12 educators as they learn about and implement these changes.
