Why Choose AP Courses?
AP courses stimulate students intellectually while also enhancing academic skills, fostering critical thinking, and improving problem-solving abilities. This prepares students for university life and beyond! A high score in an AP course is a strong signal to college admissions counselors of a student's readiness for college-level pressures. Successful AP exam scores (3 or above) can earn students course credits, advanced placements, or both at many U.S. and international colleges.
