Students that wish to get accepted to their top college or university should seriously consider taking an Advanced Placement course (or several). They will not only strengthen a student’s high school transcript and GPA, they will also provide students with actual college credit before they even graduate high school. Most importantly, they will help students develop the study skills and discipline they need to exceed both in school and out. Anyone interested in taking Advanced Placement courses should talk to their guidance counselor for more information. The sooner students begin taking their education seriously, the sooner they’ll begin to see the results of all their hard work!
