It is now the second marking period at Red Lion Area Senior High School. The Homecoming frenzy is over, halloween made its mark, and everyone has acclimated to their classes for this school year. Now, students need to think about next year.
“We are looking for every opportunity to allow kids to get college credits here at the high school or at least get prepared for college curriculum,” said Ms. Megan Axe; Head of the Social Studies Department at Red Lion.
These courses that permit college credits and preparation are called AP courses, which stands for Advanced Placement. Students that take these courses and if they successfully take the AP test receiving an appropriate score, will gain college credit and may be exempt from college courses.
