Central's AP Website
Not only does taking an AP course in high school give a student an opportunity to get University credit in high school, AP courses are shown to help better prepare high school students for the academic challenges that you experience in University.
Research consistently shows that students who are successful in AP typically experience greater academic success in college than similar students who do not participate in AP.
Post-Secondary institutes are beginning to look at prospective students' portfolios and evaluate how rigourous their senior years are, how diverse their course loads are and what better way to "beef up" your application than by being able to add an AP course or two ?
