ESP's Delve program is an intense Sunday program for academically motivated high school students (grades 9-12) aiming to prepare them for a single Advanced Placement exam. It runs for the entire academic year, starting in mid-September and ending in May in time for the AP exams. The cost of Delve is $250 for a single class, but as with all our programs, financial aid is available.

Delve is intended to be a course preparing students for an AP exam, just as an AP class in school would do. It may be taken as a supplement to an AP class on the same topic at school, but because these two classes cover the same topics, the student may find some topics in both classes unproductive.

How to Register

Delve registration is by application. The application asks several questions to gauge your preparation for the class, and whether you would benefit from the program. When you are registering, you are allowed to indicate your top two choices for classes this year.

You are most likely get into your first choice class if the teachers feel that you were prepared enough. In order to give students the best experience, if you lack the pre-requisites or if the teachers feels you are not prepared for the class, you may be asked not to take your first-choice class. Unforeseen circumstances may force us to cancel a class, although we will do our best to make these classes run. Finally, we may not have the space to accommodate all students.
