Chapel Hill High School (CHHS) has been approved by the Douglas County Board of Education to serve as the school system's College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Magnet School for the upcoming academic year. By offering a variety of AP courses in all disciplines, CHHS will expand the choices for students who wish to pursue a rigorous course load in preparation for college and for those students who want to challenge themselves in a specific area of interest, such as foreign language or art.

The Advanced Placement Program is developed by the College Board and is a nationally recognized curriculum. There are 34 different courses that schools can choose to offer through Advanced Placement. These courses are designed to challenge high school students, help them stand out in the college admissions process, and earn college credits while still in high school. Students who meet specific criteria on the AP exams will be able to skip introductory college courses thus saving them and their parents a significant amount of money on college tuition.

Chapel Hill High School is committed to expanding our AP program in an effort to encourage more students to be better prepared for the rigorous coursework they will face in college. As the AP Magnet School, we are able to provide opportunities and choices to students throughout the district. Our goal is to increase the number of AP courses offered at Chapel Hill High School and provide all Douglas County School System high school students with rigorous course choices in every academic field.

The first informational meeting for current 8th graders will be held on Thursday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel Hill High School Auditorium. Please contact Mrs. Stefanie Stinchcomb at (770) 651-6214 or stefanie.stinchcomb@douglas.k12.ga.us if you have questions.
