At St. Pius X- St. Matthias Academy, honors courses are offered in our English, Mathematics, and Science Departments. Many of these courses have been identified by the UC and CSU systems as qualifying for honors credit (i.e. extra points in the calculation of weighted grade point average). Our Advanced Placement (AP) courses are designed to prepare students for taking the AP exam, which determines a student's eligibility for college credit. Students enrolled in AP course are required to take the AP exam in that subject in May.
Students with the following prerequisites met qualify to apply for honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses: cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, B (85%) or better in prerequisite course(s), and qualifying PSAT Scores. Student that wish to apply for acceptance to honors and AP courses must submit a complete Honors/AP Application (student information, course request, student academic profile, & statement of intent), obtain a teacher recommendation, and take the subject test assessment.
