What AP classes should I take sophomore year?

Hi all! I'm wondering what AP classes would be best to take during my sophomore year. I had a good freshman year and am looking to challenge myself academically, but I also want to make sure that I'm not overwhelming myself with the workload. What AP classes do you recommend? Any advice or past experiences would be super helpful!

Hi there! It's great that you're looking to challenge yourself academically during your sophomore year. From my experience with my own child, I can offer some suggestions. It's essential to strike a balance between challenging yourself and managing your workload effectively.

AP classes such as AP Human Geography, AP Psychology, or AP Environmental Science are considered to be a good starting point for sophomores. These subjects are generally easier to handle while still providing a rigorous curriculum. Additionally, you could consider taking an AP course that aligns with your personal interests or future college major, as it can make the material more engaging for you and showcase your passion for that subject.

Remember to consider other factors like extracurricular activities and your overall course schedule, then choose AP classes that best fit your interests and capabilities. Discussing with your school counselor can also help in guiding you to make the best decision for your unique situation. Wishing you the best of luck in your academic journey!
