Our USAFA hopeful son #2 will be heading to high school next year. We have always planned that our USAFA hopeful son would attend the university preparatory high school that our older son attends. Upon our investigations over the last year I am now considering that going to a public high school where he can take AP classes and have them listed as such would look better on his application. I want to be wrong because we really like our university preparatory high school here. I talked to the school advisor and she said that although their (university prep) classes aren't listed as AP, they are at the AP level. Our oldest son goes to this school and takes high school and college classes as part of the curriculum. It is on a college campus. I am hoping someone here will be knowledgeable about the differences between the two.
