Traditionally Advanced Placement (AP) courses and exams have not been recommended for students in Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. To bust this myth, Advance CTE and the College Board collaboratively identified those AP courses that have the potential to be part of students’ programs of study within each of the 16 Career Clusters®, based on analysis and input of State CTE Directors. This brief summarizes that analysis and lists the potential AP courses by Career Cluster. This document is intended to be used by students, parents, counselors and teachers to establish pathways of study for students enrolled in CTE that lead to readiness for careers and postsecondary education.
