Market / Audience
Primary Market is composed of high school students taking Advanced Placement courses or studying for the AP exam on their own. The vast majority of US high schools now offer AP courses -- nearly 60% participate in the AP Program. As competition for admission into colleges intensifies every year, the AP program is expected to grow exponentially. Competitive colleges all look at AP scores and a good performance allows students to place out of survey courses, saving significant money in tuition expense.
