Holly IN Posted June 14, 2010 Share Posted June 14, 2010 Because of money we will have to be very selective on what courses son will take....I am looking at PA homeschoolers class. From what I remember he can't take the course until he is a junior. So in the meantime, I want him to prepare for an AP exam this year. Do we select the ones that will go for his major in college or just something to confirm what he is learning at home?? He is looking at the English/lit AP exam. However not sure what books he needs to read in regards to that. He is also thinking about AP Biology however we used Apologia Biology courses (both the Biology and the Anatomy/Physiology). I think he will need to get a secular text book to read over this year and perhaps the teaching company's Biology DVD. We got the human body one already. I pasted the requirements for HONORS diploma down below. It is required he takes an AP course and the exam. Thanks! Holly Here is the requirement for our Indiana Core 40 HONORS program: â€¢ Complete one of the following: A. Complete AP courses (4 credits) and corresponding AP exams B. Complete IB courses (4 credits) and corresponding IB exams C. Earn a combined score of 1200 or higher on the SAT critical reading and mathematics D. Score a 26 or higher composite on the ACT E. Complete dual high school/college credit courses from an accredited postsecondary institution (6 transferable college credits) F. Complete a combination of an AP course (2 credits and corresponding exam) or an IB Standard Level course (2 credits and corresponding exam) and dual high school/college credit course(s) from an accredited postsecondary institution (3 transferable college credits) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
