Best way to learn beyond Calculus in High School?

I'm going into my Senior year of high school, and I have already taken the highest math class my school offers (AP Calculus BC). I thought I would be ok with this, but at the last minute my schedule changed so I can't take a math-based science class, either. I really love math, and it makes me sad to think of going a whole year without doing more of it. I know there are some free online resources I can use, like Khan academy or MIT opencourseware, but neither of those result in a certificate or anything of that sort, as far as I can tell. On the other hand, online certificate or degree programs seem outrageously expensive compared to the AP tests I'm used to. Is there a more cost-effective way to get something to show for my effort, or are those my only options?
Thank you!

ps. What math course is best to take after Calculus? Differential equations seem like a good bet, but I'm not sure.

Have your school counselor do his/her job and research possible courses you might take at the local community/junior college or some other distance credit arrangement.

Multivariable calculus is a possibility in addition to Diffy Q.
