Pre-AP Information for Parents

Contact: Alene Lindley, Director of Secondary Curriculum, GT & Advanced Academics


Subject: Pre-AP Information for Parents


Date: January 15, 2018


Parents of fifth grade students who will attend a KISD junior high in 2018-2019 are invited to view a presentation regarding Katy ISD’s Pre-AP and AP Program.


The presentations (English and Spanish) will be located at http://www.katyisd.org/dept/GT/Pages/default.aspx below the Quick Link labeled “Presentations”.


The presentation will provide an overview of the advanced academics in Katy ISD and will address commonly asked questions about student participation in Pre-Advanced Placement courses.


Pre-AP courses (grades 6-10) are designed to prepare students to be successful in Advanced Placement (AP) courses (grades 9-12). AP courses are generally available to juniors and seniors at each of the Katy ISD high schools. AP courses provide students the opportunity to engage in college level studies with the option of taking an AP exam and possibly qualifying for college credit. In addition, research indicates that students who participate in an Advanced Placement course are more likely to complete an undergraduate program, more likely to choose academically challenging majors in college and more likely to pursue an advanced degree. Katy ISD offers Advanced Placement courses in the following disciplines – English, social studies, science, mathematics, languages other than English, computer science, music and art.


For questions about secondary course selection, attend events held at each junior high campus (dates are publicized by the junior high); consult the 2018-2019 Course Catalog; or, contact the junior high counselor.
