AP classes can save students time & money

Posted:

Parents, you can get a jump start on your child's college career before they even step foot on campus.

Experts say Advanced Placement classes pay off even more than you might think.

AP classes allow high school students to take college-level curriculums then earn college credits by passing an exam.

According to the college board, students who succeed in AP classes are more likely to complete college on time, saving you thousands of dollars.

"That's great for students and their parents during a time where most US students are taking five or six years to earn a bachelor degree, students who pass AP exams typically earn their degrees on time in four years," says Trevor Packer, College Board Head of Advanced Placement Program

Parents and students can check out what AP courses are best suited for them and their future careers. All you have to do is visit exploreap.org.
