Each student can ask questions, interact, and communicate with their instructor and fellow classmates who are participating from multiple locations as if they were all in the same classroom.

The College Board’s AP courses are college-level classes in a wide variety of subjects that you can take while still in high school. They offer you challenging course work and a taste of what college classes are like. When you take an AP course, you have the opportunity to take the AP Exam in that subject. AP Exams are given in May. They’re two- to three-hour tests made up of multiple-choice and free-response questions. The exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. You must pay a fee to take an AP Exam.
