AP English Language & Composition

The Advanced Placement English program, sponsored by the College Board, is a course that seeks to hone students’ skills as readers and writers of prose. The course uses a wide variety of selections from the rich tradition of world literature as the foundation for instruction. Analytical, expository, and argumentative writing are emphasized as these form the basis for academic and professional writing. Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement examination.

Note: summer reading requirement for this course will be announced in the spring via the Carondelet/De La Salle website.
