AP, or advanced placement courses, are college level courses offered at high schools for students who demonstrate an ability to handle advanced-level courses.
Q: What are the benefits of taking AP courses in high school?
A: First, good AP test scores will help you stand out in the college admissions process; secondly, if you get 4 or 5 for one AP test (some universities take only 5), you obtain college credit, therefore you do not need to take this course in college. With several course out of the way, you can save money on classes.
Q: What do you teach for AP courses?
A: If you are taking an AP course in your school and need extra help, we follow your school’s lessons and teach the topics you don’t understand; if your school doesn’t offer AP courses, we teach you the whole AP course for any AP subject. You can have one-on-one or small group lessons.
Q: How can I register for AP courses?
A: You can talk to the AP coordinator in your high school before March to register for the AP courses you want to take.
Q: If there are no AP courses in your high school, you can study an AP course on your own?
A: You can study AP courses by yourself and get help from us or take online courses or go to other schools such as community colleges to take the APs. You can call AP Services 609-771-7300 or 888-225-5427 to find an AP coordinator to arrange AP tests.
Q: How many AP courses should I take?
A: You can take as many as you can reasonably manage a score of 4 or 5. Do not take so many that you bring down your GPA or overburdens your workload.
