AP Government is a one-semester college level American Government online course offered to students who wish to be academically challenged and take the Advanced Placement exam. It is a survey course that provides an introduction into the operation of American national government. As such, students of this AP US government and politics course will examine the American system of government, political opinions, interests, and organizations, as well as the political institutions of government and their role in the creation and enforcement of national policy, civil liberties and civil rights. In exposing students to these areas, it is our goal to foster the development of the analytical perspectives for interpreting, understanding, and explaining the political processes and events in this country.
All courses are written to California Department of Education
standards and to national standards, as applicable.
