I'm a HS Sophomore. My school offers only 4 APs.
What should I do about that. I have plans to attend Yale Harvard G-Town & some other top schools.I know I'll probably take some local CC classes. I will take 2 of them before graduation but the other two i can't take them. Any ideas or suggestions. i know that top schools like to see APs. I want to major in poltical science. Do u know of any Summer programs

they look at your schedule and compare it to what your school offers. if you are taking half of the APs available at your school and all the rest are honors, you will be fine. just take the hardest course load possible.

You also might want to look into taking some college courses locally, or applying to summer college at a prestigious university. Schools like to see that even though difficult courses weren't offered to you, you went out of your way to find them.

Oops, sorry, I just saw that you already said you were going to take CC classes locally. I'm not sure where you live--or if that makes a difference to you--but I live in northern CA so I went to Stanford summer college for high school juniors and had a really good experience there. I'm sure a good number of the top schools have summer programs for high school students; I would surf their websites and see what you find.
PS--why are you asking about this on a Dartmouth board, since you want to go to Harvard or Georgetown?

Everywhere he posts he's considering that school, that's why.

Look to see if you can take any AP courses online. My D did a couple this way.
