Those courses include Advanced Placement (AP)/college-level classes. Each AP course has a corresponding AP exam, and those assessments will be administered from May 7 to 18 at Addison Trail.

One of the benefits of taking AP exams is they offer students the opportunity to earn college credit. Students must receive a certain score on the exam to earn college credit, and that score varies depending on the college/university. However, all public colleges in Illinois must give students credit if they score a 3 or higher on the exam. For more information about AP credit, go to www.collegeboard.org/apcreditpolicy.

Gaining college credit while in high school can save students money by not having to take those courses in college. Exposure to AP exams also familiarizes students with high-stakes, college-level tests. The more comfortable and confident students become with those types of assessments, the better they typically perform.

For more information about AP exams, contact Addison Trail Guidance Counselor Dana Marine at 630-628-3373 or DMarine@dupage88.net. General information about the AP program can be found at https://apstudent.collegeboard.org.
