The Benefits of Taking AP Classes

"The AP credits I received allowed me to skip straight to higher-level, more demanding courses in my major."

— Tyler V., University of Washington


Research consistently shows that AP students are better prepared for college than students who don’t take AP. They’re more likely to enroll and stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate in four years.

If they do not have the Google form completed before they arrive, they will have to fill it out on-site and this will slow their process of selecting a parking space.

Also, students may pay the $15 parking fee on-site by cash, check, credit, or debit. To speed up their process, students may NOW pay ONLINE before they arrive by going to https://muscleshoalscityal.csiepay.com/Views/Payment/Pay.aspx.
