AP + PLTW

To help prepare all students for the global workforce, the College Board and Project Lead The Way (PLTW) have partnered on a program to encourage student participation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses and build their interest in STEM degrees and careers. The program leverages the success of the College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) and Project Lead The Way's applied learning programs.

The program has three elements:

  • College and career pathways that connect AP and PLTW courses
  • Recognition for students who participate in the pathways, and recognition for schools
  • A portfolio of career-focused opportunities for students
