Parents and Guardians

With AP, students are able to experience the rigors of college-level studies while they still have the support of a high school environment. Resourceful and dedicated AP teachers help their students develop and apply the skills, abilities, and content knowledge they will need later in college. What’s more, by participating in AP, your child has the opportunity to earn college credit and to stand out in the college admission process.

How you can support your child in an AP course?

  • Designate specific areas in your home for schoolwork and study.
  • Remind your child to prioritize classes, activities, and work commitments.
  • Recommend that your child form a study group.
  • Review high school graduation requirements with your child.
