Colleges will typically look at your classes in context with what is offered at your high school (or equivalent in your country's education system). So as long as you're taking the most difficult or rigorous courses available to you, you should have a chance. That said, it is typically harder for international students to get into schools like the Ivies than it is for American students, unless you can pay full price.

There are some AP classes that you can take online. I am taking AP Government and Civics online.
