The Advanced Placement (AP) program provides you the opportunity to take college-level courses in high school. The program consists of 37 college-level courses and exams in 22 subjects. Individual high schools determine which courses and exams to offer; however, schools and students derive the greatest benefit from having as wide a variety of AP courses as possible. You can take courses and test any time between your freshman and senior year.
Taking AP courses will enhance your confidence and you will be better prepared for college. You may also increase your chances of admission to the college of your choice, save time and money, and graduate earlier or earn additional degrees. Funding is available to provide for a portion or all of the exam fees.
