There are a number of benefits to taking an AP course at CNG. Students who score 3 or more on their AP exams may be eligible for college credit, advanced placement or both at many universities, including those in Colombia. In addition, having AP credits on a CNG transcript communicates to colleges and universities a student´s readiness to take on the next challenge.

Acceptance into an AP course places the student in the AP Academy. Students may be accepted on a probationary basis. In such instances, it is expected that students meet the minimum expectations for students in the AP Academy in terms of attitude and behavior. In addition, the student must maintain a grade of 2.5 or higher (without the AP enhancement) throughout the course. Failing to meet these expectations, students on Probationary acceptance may be removed from the course at the end of Semester I.

Students taking AP courses at CNG are expected to participate fully in the AP course experience, including the AP exam in May. Students who do not take the AP exam seriously may still be required to take a final examination in the course in order to demonstrate to CNG that they have the requisite knowledge, understanding and skills to move on to the next level of study.

The results of AP exams are used by CNG to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning program at the advanced level. Each year, the results are analyzed to identify areasfor improvement in our ongoing efforts to improve as a school.



The College Board AP Capstone Diploma™ is an innovative program from the College Board that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. AP Capstone is built on the foundation of a new, two-course high school sequence— AP® Seminar and AP® Research — and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. These courses and this program cultivate curious, independent, and collaborative scholars and prepares them to make logical and evidence-based decisions.

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines and rewards them once the purpose is achieved.

1. Two AP Exams from two different languages selected from English and/or world languages.

2. One AP Exam designated as offering a global perspective: World History , Human Geography, and Government and Politics: Comparative.

3. One exam from the sciences or mathematics content areas.

4. One (or two) additional exam(s) from among any content areas except English and world languages. These include the content areas already described as well as history and social sciences and arts.


One of our CNG students, Sofia Escobar, Class of 2016 received an incredible honor from the College Board. One of her pieces of art was selected for inclusion into the AP Studio Art Exhibit. Only 30 pieces are featured in the exhibit, selected by a panel of judges who reviewed all of the AP Studio Art portfolios submitted in Spring 2016. In order to provide some context, her piece was selected from among the more than 50,000 portfolios (with each portfolio having multiple pieces) submitted by AP Art students from around the world. Please find the link below with her piece located sixth on the list. We’re very proud of her in earning this very unique honor and for Stalin Lopez, High School AP Art Studio 2D Teacher´s work with her.  Link
