Why AP?

  • CONFIDENCE:  Develops better study habits, improve your writing skills, and sharpen your problem solving abilities.  This will give you the confidence to tackle the academic challenges that you can expect in college.
     
  • CREDIT:  Entering college with AP credits gives you time to move into upper level courses in your field of interest, pursue a double major, or study/travel abroad.
     
  • COLLEGE SUCCESS:  Research consistently shows that students who are successful in AP typically experience greater academic success in college than similar students who do not participate in AP.
