According to research, students who participate in AP classes are more likely to go to college and graduate on time.

Students still benefit from taking AP courses in high school even if they don’t receive college credit for it by showing willingness to work hard academically and adopting skills needed to excel in future careers. AP classes also raise a student’s GPA.
Earning an AP® School Honor Roll certification shows significant schoolwide work from dedicated teachers, administrators, counselors, students, and staff.
