Emmaus High School, along with thousands of schools across the country, allows students to take Advanced Placement, or AP, classes. Offered through Collegeboard, the curriculum for each of these 36 courses is uniform in every school that teaches the classes. Teachers pace the class in order to finish teaching in May, when nationwide AP exams are administered. 

In 2021, students chose whether to take the exam online or in person one month before the digital exams. At Emmaus, 24 different courses are offered, spanning a variety of subjects including art, English, math, and science.
