AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high school level; students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit.

The 2018 AP Honor Schools are named in six categories, based on the results of 2017 AP courses and exams.
