3 How can I get college credit while in high school? 1. AP : high school credit and may earn college credit based on examination score for Advance Placement courses 2. Dual enrollment/accel academic courses: high school and college credit 3. Dual enrollment/hope Grant Technical program: high school and college credit 4.

Residental Programs: high school and college credit at The Advanced Academy of Georgia on the campus of the University of West Georgia or The Georgia Academy of Mathematics, Engineering and Science at Middle Georgia College 6. Joint enrollment: only college credit will not earn high school credit

4 Advanced Placement Courses Students in any grade may take AP courses (if prerequisites are completed). AP courses follow a curriculum mandated by the College Board. AP exams prepared by the College Board are given in May, and are graded by the College Board on a 1 to 5 scale, with 5 being the highest. Scores are reported in mid July. Colleges may award credit based on the AP exam score.

5 Why take Advanced Placement Courses? Build skills necessary to succeed in college Build a transcript indicating success in rigorous coursework Pursue possible college credit based upon scores from one exam at the end of the year Seek possible national recognition AP Scholars Program

6 Characteristics of AP Students Extremely motivated students who do not mind reading Students who demonstrate focus in one or two areas, leading to a particular college major Students that are heavily involved in activities outside of school or extra curricular sports Students who can work independently at an extremely fast pace to complete regular assignments

7 AP Course Offerings at GHS AP Art AP Art AP English Language AP English Literature AP Geography AP World History AP Government AP U.S. History AP Economics 9th Grade 10th Grade 11th Grade 12th Grade AP Chemistry AP Biology AP Physics AP Calculus AB Other AP courses may be available through virtual learning AP Statistics AP Calculus BC

8 AP Tests All students in AP courses take the AP Exams in May AP Exams consist of Multiple Choice Exams with a Free Response section Cost of tests varies GHS requires students to remain in AP courses the entire year Schedule changes will not be made mid year

9 Advantages of AP Rigorous coursework prepares students for college level work Students can choose which courses to take (typically student strengths) College credit possible Time management skills must exist, but students have more flexibility with time Students can generally still participate in all extracurricular activities Extra.05 added to GPA

10 Do colleges prefer AP over Dual Enrollment college classes? All AP courses undergo a rigorous audit by the College Board to ensure that each course complies with standards agreed upon. As a fail safe, AP students are encouraged to take a standardized test at the end of the academic year so there can be no question as to the quality of coursework and student performance. Because all AP courses are accountable to the same expectations, college admission counselors can be relatively confident in the quality of instruction. With college dual enrollment courses, however, admissions professionals are left to make educated guesses about the rigor and quality of specific programs with limited knowledge of the course material and no standardized exam. This might not present as troublesome a problem regionally, but schools receiving applications from across the country can t afford to individually investigate every dual enrollment course they come across. Carefully weigh your options when choosing between taking a course for an AP or Dual Enrollment credit.

11 Interested in enrolling in AP courses? Are you a highly motivated student seeking challenging coursework? Analyze your current performance and the effort that you are willing to put into your courses. Discuss options with your teachers, parents and counselor. Consider the positive impact AP will have on college admission. Talk with AP teachers and review their websites. Talk to students currently enrolled in those courses.
