Illinois Virtual School is Providing AP Courses to Rural High Schools Through a Pilot Program Sponsored by the Governor’s Rural Affairs Council.

The Governor’s Rural Affairs Council (GRAC), in cooperation with IVS, has launched a pilot program which offers AP Courses to students in rural Illinois High Schools. Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti, who chairs the GRAC, unveiled the project earlier this month in news conferences at a few of the participating schools.

This initial program is offering AP U.S. Government and Politics to 75 students from 10 high schools from throughout the State of Illinois. The schools chosen for the program have limited, or no, AP options available for their students. Lt. Governor Sanguinetti stressed the importance of AP courses because “they improve college readiness and help students get into their preferred institutions”. AP courses also provide college credit if students earn a score of 3 or higher on the AP Exam.

The high schools participating in the program are Altamont, Kankakee, Knoxville, Illini Central, Tri-Point, Pope County, Orangeville, Quincy, Central A&M, and Georgetown-Ridge Farm. Check out the map below to see where these schools are located.
