Please see a full list of the class standards on http://cms.gavirtualschool.org/DEV17/Science/Astronomy/Standards/AstronomyStandards.pdf I am a virtual science teacher for the school system, so I have created this standards based course specifically for my Outschool learners. Please see standards worksheet attached. I will be following state standards, Next Generation, and pulling standardized questions from the College Board website too.

Advanced Placement (AP) courses were created by the College Board, an US non-profit organization that connects high school students to colleges and universities, and assists in their preparation for higher education. Essentially, AP courses are college-level classes that you take while you are still completing your high school degree. The curriculum for this course will be teacher created, but based on the College Board standards. Students from all over the world can take this class, but our US students/families might be interested in the curriculum based goals, so it will be College Board based.
