ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

As classes resume, one Albany high school hopes to increase its number of advanced placement scholars.
    
Last year 14 students at Westover High scored high enough on AP exams to earn college credit.

"It's very gratifying, very exciting because we want them to be college and career ready, that's our goal and so when we see these students that do make this achievement, that shows us that we're doing our job," said Assistant Principal Brian Collier.

Collier says AP classes can help students save money on college because they get credit without having to pay to take those college courses.
