A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you'll notice the difference—in the teacher's approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you'll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

How Do I Enroll?

Once you've decided to take the AP challenge it's easy to enroll. Talk to an AP teacher at your school about the course you want to take. Discuss the course's workload and any preparation you might need.
