    Does anyone on here who has gone to an academy or know about the admissions to an academy have a recommendation on taking an AP Physics v. College Biology, in reference to which the academy would look better upon? Any info would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    If you look at the course catalog you will see that Physics is part of the core curriculum; Biology is not. I'd go with the Physics. Disclaimer: I did not attend any academy.

    When the Academy sends students to Prep school, they require them to take College Chemistry, College Physics, Precalculus, and Composition. Take that for what you will.

    Our son is at the academy. He took AP Physics in HS. I'd echo the recommendations already given.
