Elinor Everywhere Posted February 19, 2012 Share Posted February 19, 2012 Today at my dd's National Homeschool Honor Society meeting, the guest speaker was a recruiter from Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University. After giving her pitch for the program, which was very enticing, I asked if they rate AP classes over CC dual enrollment classes. She stated that they look at them in equal light. I am in the throes of planning high school, so this was important info to me. My problem with AP classes is that for college credit, it all hinges on one test. CC classes, on the other hand, take into account the entire semester's worth of tests, quizzes, essays, homework, etc. Both trim classes off the university schedule, which the recruiter suggested we use for double majoring or having a minor is a subject that interests my dd. Although I still plan on having my dd take a few AP classes (in particular, Latin through Lukeion, since she plans on majoring in Classcis), I did feel better about my CC options in my state. Hope this is encouraging to some of you as it was to me! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
