Notes de l'éditeur

  • College Admissions is the most competitive it has ever been.
    The median GPA for admission into Massachusetts State Colleges (Salem State, Framingham State, etc.) is a 2.8, or a B-.
    AP classes help to make students more attractive to colleges.
    Taking Advanced Placement classes can SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the overall cost of attending college.
    Early Graduation
    More room to make up classes
    Less additional time required for dual majors or changes in major.
  • The full cost to take one (1) Advanced Placement exam is $86.
    Most colleges require a score of 3 or above to earn college credit equal to one class.

  • Honors classes can provide rigor if your school does not offer many or any AP classes. Going through an honors class not only shows colleges that you are challenging yourself, but it can help prepare you for CLEP or SAT subject tests
    CLEP – College Level Examination Program, administered by the College Board. If you take an AP exam and don’t score well, or if you take an honors class and don’t have the chance to sit for an AP exam, you can take a CLEP test in any subject. The test is $77 and many colleges will accept CLEP credit. Check out the college board website for details.
    SAT Subject Tests – Also administered by College Board, these tests don’t allow for earning college credit but might help with admissions and scholarships.
  • "We highly value AP courses in our review of applicants. The strength of a student's curriculum is the most important aspect of our review.” - Ann Bader, Senior Admission Counselor at Miami University
    "AP classes will definitely help [the student] stand out in the admission and scholarship processes. Indirectly those classes may also help improve…SAT or ACT scores.” - Karen Scott, Texas Christian University
