General AP Program Info

Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Through AP's college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the admission process, and learn from some of the most skilled, dedicated, and inspiring teachers in the world.

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.

  • AP helps students qualify for scholarships - 31 percent of colleges and universities look at AP experience when determining scholarships.2
