AP Access for ALL Providing Thousands of Tennessee Students Access to Online College Prep Classes
Spring Registration for Free, Online AP classes Now Open for Tennessee High School Students
NASHVILLE, TN - Today, the Tennessee Department of Education, in partnership with the Niswonger Foundation, announced spring registration for the AP Access for ALL is open for free, online Advanced Placement (AP) classes to eligible high school students. More Tennessee students than ever before now have the opportunity to take AP coursework - helping students prepare for college, skip introductory classes, and earn college credit while still in high school.
Before the launch of AP Access for ALL in June 2021, only 50% of Tennessee high school students had access to an AP class at their school. Now, 86% of all public high schools, representing 110 school districts, have partnered with AP Access for ALL to give their students access to college level courses and the opportunity to earn college credit during high school. Students are encouraged to sign up through their high school counselors.
All AP Access for ALL courses are taught by certified and trained Tennessee teachers. In order to provide the online coursework, AP Access for ALL has provided scholarships to 119 teachers to receive College Board certification. This summer, the program will once again offer free College Board training and certification to nearly 800 Tennessee teachers.
Funding for AP Access for ALL is provided through the federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) and Governor's Emergency Education Relief (GEER) funds.
