IS YOUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT READY TO TAKE AP CLASSES?

The College Board: How Taking Challenging Courses Will Give Your Teen the Competitive Edge

 

Terry Redican

AP Vice President, The College Board

 

 

More than 2.8 million students take Advanced Placement® Exams every year in 38 subjects. Starting in January, students can sign up for fall courses. Why should you encourage your child take an AP® course? Key reasons: the admission advantage and the opportunity to save time and money in college.

Completing AP courses and exams distinguishes students in the college application process. College admission officers like students who show initiative to learn and take challenging courses.

Students who are successful in AP can get college credit in over 3,800 U.S. colleges and universities. They typically graduate in four years, saving fifth-year college costs.

Research shows AP students earn higher college GPAs and have higher graduation rates, compared to their peers who don’t take AP.

AP Vice President Terry Redican can talk about the value of taking AP courses in high school and how to get extra help to get ready for AP Exams.
