• Advanced Placement Tests (AP)
    More information will be forthcoming about registration.  It is CRUCIAL that your student has joined the AP Classroom for each AP Exam they plan to take.  Otherwise, a test cannot be ordered for them.  Payment and test registration is completed through Family ID.  
    Who takes AP exams?
    AP exams are given to students enrolled in Advanced Placement Courses. Passing scores on these tests may qualify students for college credit.  Each college makes a decision about how many credits it will offer, and they may offer a different number of credits based on the score achieved.  Some of the most competitive colleges offer no credit.  However, they have an expectation that high-performing students demonstrate a level of rigor that advanced placement courses provide, and they may use high AP scores as a piece of evidence in the college admissions process.
    College Board/AP Exams

    The 2023 AP Exams will be administered in schools over two weeks in May: May 1–5 and May 8–12.
