Chalk Talk: Benefits of AP Classes
Advanced Placement (AP) courses challenge students to think critically and develop other college-readiness skills. Because AP courses are of higher rigor than normal high school classes, students that successfully complete them have a leg up on other students when applying to colleges. Admissions officers find AP coursework highly impressive. AP courses also offer a great value for parents because students can earn college credit if they successfully pass the AP exam. Students that begin their AP coursework early enough in high school can easily graduate with several semesters worth of college credit, even before stepping foot on a college campus. By getting general course requirements out of the way in high school, students have more time to explore elective courses once they get to college, or they can more easily pursue a minor or even a second major.
