6. Plan for 2013 Academics Now

It's not too early to think about signing up for PHC Prep Academy's
one-semester spring courses. AP Macroeconomics and AP U.S. Government
and Politics both begin in January. If you have a high school junior
or senior, PHC Prep online is a great way to provide these required
courses--and strengthen your teen's Christian worldview. Courses are
designed by Patrick Henry College professors and Christian leaders who
care about the development of your teen's faith--and academic success.
