AP Advanced Placement Linear Algebra for Advanced High School StudentsIf the AP Calculus sequence continued in high school, one of the courses after AP Calculus BC (Calculus II) would be: AP Linear Algebra.
Linear Algebra is a course taken in the sophomore year in college/university, and taken after Calculus II (AP Calculus BC).
The Linear Algebra course is almost never offered in high schools due to its advanced nature, and also because there is a no "AP Linear Algebra" exam.
College credit for calculus courses does not depend upon the AP Calculus exams - even while you are in high school, you may jump in collegiate math courses, either at a local college, or via an online program like Distance Calculus.
It is important to earn real, transferrable academic credit, like those credits you may earn from Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University. There are many Linear Algebra courses running around the internet, and some of them are really really excellent! But if they don't offer real, transferrable college credit, well .... you need to prove to others you have completed Linear Algebra!
Here is a video about our Linear Algebra course via Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University:

Courses Completed: Calculus I
Review: I really enjoyed this course, much more than I thought I would. I needed to finish this course very fast before starting my graduate degree program @ Kellogg. I was able to finish in 3 weeks. I liked the video lectures and the homework process. I highly recommend this course.

Review: Dr. Curtis gave helpful and timely feedback, and made the teaching videos very engaging! The course model and associated software was easy to acclimate to.

Courses Completed: Calculus II
Review: I took Calculus II through Distance Calculus and can't recommend it enough. Being able to take the course at my own pace while I was working full time was tremendously helpful, especially since I hadn't taken a math course for 5 years prior. The instruction was excellent and the software they used to teach the course was intuitive and facilitated the learning process very well. This calc II class enabled me to take multivariable calc, linear algebra, and real analysis at Harvard University's extension school, which ultimately qualified me for the economics PhD program that I will graduate from next year. 8 years on, I'm still grateful to Professor Curtis and Distance Calculus.
