Why Take AP classes?

Stand Out in College Admissions

Choosing an AP course showcases to colleges and universities that you possess the drive and capability to thrive in an undergraduate setting.

Taking AP signifies your readiness for the most demanding classes your high school offers.

Most institutions nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, based on qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits provide opportunities to save on tuition costs, explore study abroad programs, or pursue additional majors. AP turns aspirations into achievable goals.

Handling complex issues and problems becomes more natural with the guidance of dedicated AP teachers. AP courses offer insight into the upcoming phase of your academic journey, empowering you with the confidence to excel.
