Cambridge students take an average of 6.25 AP courses, with a 72% pass rate on AP exams in 19 different subjects.

Cambridge specializes in finding the right college match for our students by allowing them opportunities for exposure to many colleges throughout the United States via college trips, fairs, and visiting reps. The Director of College Placement and entire faculty work closely with students to help them make wise decisions about where they will continue to flourish in their post-secondary education.
