How many AP classes a high school senior should take?
How many AP classes you should take senior year depends on how many you’ve taken in 9th-11th grades and how you fared. If you’ve done well in AP classes before 12th grade you should plan on taking additional AP classes senior year. By now you’ve probably earned most of the core credits you need to graduate, so there should be more room in your schedule for elective like AP classes.
College-bound seniors could aim for 2-4 AP classes senior year. If you’re applying to highly competitive schools you could take as many as 5-6. Our guide to how many AP classes you should take each year of high school can help you plan your course selections so you’re not stuck scrambling.
Don’t get so focused on the number of AP classes that you have little time to spend applying for scholarships and college admissions. Balance is key, and talking to your school’s academic advisor is a good place to start.
How do I choose the best AP classes for your senior year?
There are a couple of strategies for picking the best AP classes in 12th grade. First, there’s the potential to test out of and/or receive early college credit in certain subjects. No matter what you major in, you’ll have to take math and English classes in college. If you score high enough in AP English and AP Calculus you might not have to retake them at university.
The other approach is based on your intended college major, if you have one. As an example, if you know you want to major in one of the hard sciences, definitely get a head start on college-level science classes with AP Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
No matter which AP classes you take in 12th grade, getting accustomed to college-level material will benefit you down the road. So if you’re interested in a specific subject like AP Art History or AP Computer Science, go for it!

Can I finish my senior year of high school online?
Yes! If you are transferring to eAchieve Academy for your senior year, you will likely be required to meet the graduation requirements of the school you’re transferring from.

Should I take AP classes in my senior year?
If there’s an Advanced Placement class in a subject you find interesting and you’re otherwise on track with the credits you’ll need to graduate, by all means take an AP class or two. Taking AP classes senior year can impress college admissions officers, as long as you do well in them. Because they’re more challenging, taking AP classes senior year can be a great way to prepare for college-level classes. Earning a high enough score on the AP exam may also let you earn college credits ahead of time, potentially saving money on college tuition.
Do colleges look at senior year grades?
Yes – and letting your grades, attendance or extracurricular involvement go down the tubes senior year can potentially sabotage your plans for higher education. Because most students apply to colleges toward the end of the first semester of their senior year, college admissions officers usually only see your freshman through junior year grades – at first. Most will require a mid-year report with your final grades from first semester of senior year. Some schools even grant admission contingent upon your final senior year grades. If you’re on a wait list for your first-choice school, keeping your grades up your entire senior year is a must to increase your odds of admission.
