April marks the beginning of spring and the final quarter of study for the 2013-2014 school year. Students currently enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses, as well as many International Baccalaureate students, have recently completed the registration process for AP examinations that are administered in May. Since its inception in 1955, the AP Program has allowed millions of students in thousands of high schools worldwide to take college level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.
AP courses are an excellent addition to the college-bound student’s resume. Regardless of the AP test score attained, colleges and universities continue to look at participation in AP courses and the academic rigor as an indicator of a potential student’s overall college readiness.
