Dear parents,

If your child is taking one or more Advanced Placement (AP) courses at Harmony! As you may know, there are several benefits of taking AP courses;

  • Stand Out in College Admissions

Deciding to take an AP course lets colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. When admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they know that what you experienced in a particular class has prepared you well for the challenges of college.

  • Earn College Credits

By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores.

  • Skip Introductory Classes

If you already know your preferred college major, taking a related AP course and earning a qualifying score on the AP Exam can help you advance and avoid required introductory courses – so you can move directly into upper-level classes and focus on the work that interests you most.

  • Build College Skills

Taking an AP course builds the skills you’ll need throughout your college years. You give your mind a rigorous workout while polishing up your time management and study skills. You also get better at handling challenging issues and problems, with the support of your AP teachers.

Students have been studying hard and getting ready to AP Exams, which are going to allow them earn college credit! We encourage all AP students to sign up and fulfill their time by studying for their exams. 2018 AP Exam calendar is attached.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   With our best wishes, College and Career Counseling Department – HSA-SA
