To be honest, I don't know how much they will help if you are self-studying in terms of your college applications. However, feel free to give it a shot if you can handle it and maybe include that you are self-studying in your additional information section. At the very least, you may be able to get some college credit and save some money in return for your efforts.

Colleges do understand it if your high school does not offer AP classes so don't worry about the fact that other applicants to the same schools you are applying to may have taken more. Good luck on your apps!
