AP Classes and Exam Information

Are you interested in potentially earning college credit while attending Intersect Virtual School?

If so, Intersect Virtual School offers a variety of Advanced Placement courses that not only prepare students for college, but also allows students to potentially earn college credit. Students may take several AP classes along with their other required courses for a total of six courses for one semester. The AP courses are designed to prepare students for the AP test in the spring, and the results of the test may lead to college credit!

Advanced Placement tests are given annually through Athens High School. Students who take an AP class are not required to take the AP test, because there is a fee. However, there are several benefits to taking AP courses and/or AP tests:

  • Taking an AP class indicates that you have attempted the most demanding course in a specific subject.
  • When you apply, universities that are selective look favorably on the number of AP classes that you have successfully attempted.
  • If you score high on an AP test, most colleges will award you advanced credit (each college determines how much credit they award). 
  • Earning college credit in advance can save you a significant amount of money due to less classes to take in college.

If you are currently excelling in a particular subject, you might want to consider enrolling in an AP class next year. We can discuss this option when scheduling for fall classes. Please contact Olivia Svacha at osvacha@troy.k12.mi.us for more information!
