Show us what you know!

Now, you have that opportunity right in front of you. edX (founded by Harvard University) has launched a high school initiative which allows you to take a huge selection of AP courses online, for free.
Juniors and Seniors: want to shore up that resume? Few things are more impressive than saying “I took a college-level course, as a high school student, just because I felt like it.”
