College Courses, AP Scholars
Posted 09/12/2017 10:58AM

Thanks to the historic relationship between the school and the University of the South, qualified upperclassmen can enroll in courses at the college for credit. This semester 11 SAS students are taking 15 courses at Sewanee, including Calculus, Electricity & Magnetism, French, Microeconomics, German, and World Politics.

Because SAS student can take actual college courses for credit, the school does not offer AP courses. However, each year students choose to prepare independently to take AP exams. Four of the students who chose to do this last year received 2017 AP School Scholar awards. The AP Scholar Awards recognize high school students who have demonstrated college-level achievement in AP courses and exams. Students included seniors Ester Yang and Cindy Chen and recent graduates Andrew Bachman (now enrolled at Lafayette College), and Bonnie Tu (now enrolled at Indiana University). These students took AP exams in Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Calculus, Physics, English Literature and Composition, US History, Chemistry, Statistics, and Environmental Science.

St. Andrew's-Sewanee School welcomes students in grades 8-12. St. Andrew's-Sewanee School will hold its Admission Open House for application to the 2018-19 academic year on Sunday, October 8. More information is available at www.sasweb.org/admissions.
