AP Courses & Exams​
Taking the Advanced Placement exam is an important part of all AP courses. Scoring well on an AP exam may earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. The AP website provides more information about the AP program. Also, check AP credit policies for information about how colleges and universities accept AP scores for college credit.
