AP EXAM REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR


Advanced Placement courses offer students an opportunity to take a course taught on a college level.  Both enrichment and college credit are available to the dedicated student.  Intensive classroom work, independent study, and research are integral parts of the program.  The cost of taking AP Examinations is absorbed by the student.  The examination is administered by the College Entrance Examination Board and a five-point college-level scale is used.  According to the College Board, currently more than 90% of colleges and universities offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP scores. 

AP Examinations must be taken to receive Level 1 (1.1 weighting) as well as AP designation for the course taken on a transcript.  If a student chooses not to take an AP exam, the student will receive a Level 2 (1.05 Honors Weighting), but will still receive the AP designation for a course taken on the transcript.
