AP courses make substantial academic demands on students. Students are required to do considerable outside reading and other assignments and to demonstrate the analytical skills and writing abilities expected of first-year students in strong college programs. Because students may receive college credit for their AP grades, the related AP courses and exams must be demonstrably equivalent to the standards of strong college course.
AP courses may often provide a chance to earn college credits and fulfill college requirements before a student begins their first year of college. Please check the acceptable scores and equivalency hours at the university your child plans to attend.
