Advanced Placement

The AP Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school.
         Taking AP courses in high school could give you an advantage in college by letting you: 

  1. Earn college credit: your AP score could earn you college credits before you even set foot on campus. Nearly all colleges and universities in the US grant credit and placement for qualifying AP exam scores. Go to this link to see which AP exam score you will need in a subject in order to earn credit at the college or university you are interested in: 
    Use this tool to find colleges that offer credit or placement for AP scores.
  2. Earn Advanced Placement: your AP score can let you skip introductory courses in college. 
  3. Save money and time: earning credit or placement can open up time on your schedule or even let you graduate college early. The AP exams costs $96, but a college course costs hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars.
  4. Stand out to colleges: AP on your high school transcript shows colleges you have already tackled college-level work. 

A note about testing: The AP test is optional. You choose to take it and you have to pay for it. If you do not like your score, you do not have to share it with the colleges you will apply to. Therefore, it makes sense to try it, since you have gone through a year long preparation process and it might save you money in college.

AP classes require more work and have stricter deadlines and policies for homework.
If you are ready for the challenge, you can sign up for an AP class!
