Question: My daughter is currently taking AP World History in 10th grade. In 11th grade, students have many options. One is AP US History and the other is a Syracuse University US History course (the fee for this class is ~$600). There are also general history courses that she is not interested in. Have you ever heard of the SUPA (Syracuse) course? Any idea how it will be weighed when applying to colleges?
If your daughter has a choice between a SUPA course and an AP class, I vote for the AP option. Although the SUPA (Syracuse University Project Advance) program is well respected by those who know it, the key words are "those who know it." It is not as widely recognized as is AP ... not even close. And many colleges will not give credit for SUPA at all. It's also more expensive than AP.
