Local business helps AP students
ELLAVILLE — Students taking Advanced Placement courses in high school reap the benefits of college-level instruction and rigor in classes such as AP literature, environmental science, biology, U.S. history, government, and calculus.
Twenty-eight Schley County High School students earned college credit this year in five of these AP courses (14 in environmental science alone). Many of these students are enrolled in more than one AP class, but simply cannot afford to take more than one test, which costs $93.
TCI Powder Coatings, of Ellaville, donated $200 this year to defray some of these costs, allowing more students to take the exams and earn college credit.
