Why should I take an AP course?
Scoring well on an AP exam not only indicates to college admissions officers that you can handle rigorous academic offerings, but can help you save on college expenses as well. Currently, 90 percent of colleges and universities offer college credit for qualifying AP exam scores. These credits can help save students thousands of dollars in college tuition, fees and textbook costs.
