Today, students are aspiring to attend the very best colleges and universities. With that aspiration, comes a lot of responsibility and work. Some important questions to ask yourself as you prepare to choose AP classes and testing: Are you passionate about the subject? Do you want to surround yourself with motivated, engaged students? Are you willing and/or prepared to put in extra time and effort?
If you have answered yes to those questions, then Advanced Placement courses and testing can help you as a student reach those goals by spring-boarding you forward. Example: AP courses are weighted to count as one quality point higher than a standard course. For example, a ‘B’ in an AP course count as a 4.0 for the course instead of a 3.0.
CCA students enrolled in AP courses are required to take the associated AP examination(s) for those class(es).
