(NAPSI)—The Advanced Placement (AP) Program gives students a chance to experience college-level classes in high school and opens the door to earning college credit before they ever set foot on campus. Students get to dig deeper into subjects they love, while building the skills and confidence they need to succeed in college. There are more statewide and system-wide AP credit policies than ever; over 99 percent of colleges have an AP credit policy in place.
And, regardless of a student’s AP Exam score, taking AP courses can have a positive affect on their college applications. Admissions officers understand that college faculty play a big role in developing AP courses, so they know students who took AP pushed themselves to take challenging, college-level courses.
