Are AP Courses Imperative Instead of Dual-Enrollment?
My son is allowed to take dual-enrollment courses for free via the virtual high school curriculum, but we'd have to pay for AP classes. If he takes dual-enrollment-level Stats or Calculus, would that be enough for admission officers to see that he took a high level of rigor, or do I have to sign him up for the AP courses to show rigor? He will be applying to in-state colleges next year as a history major or a business major. Also, I'm wondering if colleges expect AP to always be taken first, then dual-enrollment, or if we can go straight to dual-enrollment.
