High School AP Chemistry Course
Embark on a molecular adventure with Excel High School's AP Chemistry course. This program goes beyond the basics of chemistry; it's a comprehensive exploration into the nature and reactivity of matter. Perfect for students with aspirations in science, health sciences, or engineering, this course covers a broad spectrum of topics, including chemical reactions, electrochemistry, the physical properties of materials, and the forces at the molecular level. Students will delve into complex concepts such as the laws of thermodynamics, molecular collisions, and chemical equilibria, gaining a deep understanding of how matter changes and reacts.
Mirroring the depth of an introductory college-level chemistry course, our AP Chemistry program is expertly crafted to prepare students for the AP exam and their future academic pursuits. The course is designed not only to impart knowledge but also to develop critical thinking skills and cognitive strategies. Through hands-on labs and virtual lab studies, students engage in real-world scientific processes, forming hypotheses, conducting experiments, analyzing data, and drawing meaningful conclusions. This active learning approach, combined with frequent assessments and engagement with primary sources, ensures that students don't just learn chemistry, but also develop the analytical skills necessary to succeed in higher-level science courses. Enroll in Excel High School's AP Chemistry course and start a journey that will challenge and inspire you, preparing you for a future in the fascinating world of chemistry.

High School AP Chemistry
AP Chemistry builds students' understanding of the nature and reactivity of matter. After studying chemical reactions and electrochemistry, students move on to understand how the chemical and physical properties of materials can be explained by the structure and arrangements of the molecules and the forces between those molecules. Students will examine the laws of thermodynamics, molecular collisions, and the reorganization of matter in order to understand how changes in matter take place. Finally, students will explore chemical equilibria, including acid-base equilibria. The equivalent of an introductory college-level chemistry course, AP Chemistry prepares students for the AP exam and for further study in science, health sciences, or engineering.
The AP Chemistry course provides a learning experience focused on allowing students to develop their critical thinking skills and cognitive strategies. Frequent no- and low-stakes assessments allow students to measure their comprehension and improve their performance as they progress through each activity. Students regularly engage with primary source materials, allowing them to practice the critical reading and analysis skills that they will need in order to pass the AP exam and succeed in a college chemistry course. Students perform hands-on labs that give them insight into the nature of science and help them understand chemical concepts, as well as how evidence can be obtained to support those concepts. Students also complete several virtual lab studies in which they form hypotheses; collect, analyze, and manipulate data; and report their findings and conclusions. During both virtual and traditional lab investigations and research opportunities, students summarize their findings and analyze others' findings in summaries, using statistical and mathematical calculations when appropriate. Summative tests are offered at the end of each unit as well as at the end of each semester, and contain objective and constructed response items. Robust scaffolding, rigorous instruction, relevant material, and regular active learning opportunities ensure that students can achieve mastery of the skills necessary to excel on the AP exam.
