Chalk Talk: Benefits of AP Coursework
Many high schools offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses so that students can get a jump-start on college level work. These courses are more challenging than normal high school classwork that is commensurate with the rigors of collegiate coursework. Because AP courses require higher-level thinking skills, students that participate in them leave high school with enhanced academic abilities that will benefit them once they arrive in college. Additionally, many colleges and universities offer credit for AP coursework, so long as the student successfully passed the AP exam with a sufficient score. This means that students who take a number of AP classes in high school can begin college with a semester or year’s worth of college coursework already completed. By exploring various AP classes in high school, students likewise get the benefit of trying out various academic areas. This means they may be able to choose a major sooner and dive right into their chosen major once they reach college. This not only saves time, but money as well.
