Advanced Placement Program
The Advanced Placement Program is a cooperative education endeavor with the College Board. Advanced Placement courses, often known as AP, allow students the opportunity to take college-level courses while they are enrolled in high school. Students enrolled in an AP course should expect extensive reading, writing, and critical thinking.
Students, parents or guardians are responsible for the cost of the AP Exams. Each exam is $85 with the exception of AP Seminar which is $133.00.
Exams must be paid for by November 1, 2019 to appropriately plan for test administration. Students who register for AP Exams after this deadline will be charged a $40.00 late fee per late test registration, in addition to the $85 fee. Refunds provided to students who cancel their AP exam between November 15-March 6 will exclude a $40 non-refundable fee. Exam adds or drops are not permitted after march 6 2020. Requests for refunds should be diredted to Mrs. Liz Grainger in School Counseling.
