Advance Shafter



  • Shafter High students enrolled in AP classes at Shafter High or at the Shafter Learning Center can become eligible for the program by attending at least three hours of special tutoring/study sessions with their instructor.

  • This qualifies them for a $35 reduction in the cost of their AP exam.

  • It also qualifies them for a cash reward for success on the exam. For each qualifying score of 3, students will receive $100. For each 4, they will receive $150, and for each 5, they will receive $200.

We believe that the true value of succeeding in AP coursework is significantly higher than these amounts, but we hope that this tangible and immediate benefit will reduce financial barriers to success and perhaps motivate students to do what is necessary in the present to reap long-term benefits in the future.
