When students take Advanced Placement (AP) college-level courses and exams, they have the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. Students who take AP courses will be immersed in a rigorous, college-level classroom experience with certified College Board teachers who are passionate about their subjects and demonstrate continued commitment to meeting the needs of their pupils.

Examination Process

The AP Examinations are administered each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school level. Rigorously developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty, the exams test students' ability to perform at a college level.

The end product of the AP Exams is the AP grades that are reported to students, their schools, and their designated colleges in July. The colleges use these grades as evidence of the students' abilities and achievements when they make their decision regarding whether or not to grant credit and/or advanced placement. The fee for each exam is $89. Fee reductions are available pending qualification.

The AP grade scale ranges from 5 to 1:
5 = Extremely Well Qualified
4 = Well Qualified
3 = Qualified
2 = Possibly Qualified
1 = No Recommendation 

AP Exam Registration

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are in May, and we are opening registration, either online or in person, for the 2013-2014 school year. This year we are once again accepting online payments for credit cards for AP registration. The online system is already active, and is accessible through the school website. You and your parents will be able to “shop” for exams and pay for them online with a credit card. You can also pay with a check or a money order to Ms. Wahrman in the IB Office (Room 109) during lunch. The deadline for registration is March 31. The cost for regular AP exams this year is $89, and the cost for students who are approved for a fee waiver is $13. Please be advised that any exam requested after March 31, 2014 must be special ordered and will incur a $50.00 College Board late fee PER EXAM. Attached is a paper registration form for students who choose to register in person and a calendar of all AP exams.
