AP Courses Improve College Readiness

Over one million students in the class of 2017 took AP exams, an increase of 70% over the past 10 years, according to the The College Board. Apex Learning has enabled districts nationwide to offer AP courses to all their students.


Online AP Courses Bridge Equity Gap

According to Equal Opportunity Schools, a nonprofit education consortium: 

  • Approximately 750,000 incoming juniors and seniors are ready to enroll in rigorous academic programs each year, but low-income students and students of color are not being engaged at the same rate as their peers. 
  • Low-income students and students of color who enroll in rigorous classes are more likely to graduate and attend college.


"Apex Learning has been instrumental in our mission to give all Iowa students access to high-quality, Advanced Placement coursework.

Because of our work with Apex Learning we have been able to reach thousands of students in ways that will impact the course of their academic path in high school and beyond."
