Advanced Placement International Diploma
The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) (click here to view APID criteria) 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.
Universities worldwide utilize the APID in admissions but it is not a substitute for a high school diploma. Rather, it provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.
