LNC Posted November 18, 2010 Share Posted November 18, 2010 (edited) My thread about our science sequence has me pondering AP classes. I was planning for my children to take several Ap for their humanities courses, but several posters recommended AP sciences as well for science/pre-med majors. I'm wondering how you spread these out. My twin sister and I took every AP class our high school offered in 10th and 11th grades. 3-4 per year. We dual enrolled with Emory University for our senior year. I'm thinking my children could handle some in 9th right? Something like this through Penn Homeschoolers: 9th- AP US Govt 10th- AP Econ AP English Lang (to get feedback before writing PSAT portion in 11th) 11th- AP European History AP Chem AP English Lit 12th- AP Latin AP US History AP Physics - possibly self study with Dive/Saxon Physics AP Calculus BC My original intention was to have them CLEP or Sat-2 the science courses to save money. We wouldn't accept the AP credit for their science intro courses anyway, bc it might mess with their college gpa. Several posters recommended AP science as well anyway. This is combined with our future plans to study Logic, Rhetoric, Latin, Spanish, and Great Books per WTM. Of course, our normal math and science studies will be included also. I was previously counting on several SAT-2 or CLEP (just for verification of mommy grades), 2-4 AP (for credit), stellar activities, personal interest, essays, and great SAT scores to get them admitted. My thread below startled me. Is this number of AP courses what it takes to get into a top in-state university as a homeschooler??
