AP Exam Information
AP stands for Advanced Placement. These are college-level classes taught in high schools throughout the country. Students enrolled in these classes are not required to take the AP exam, administered in May of every year. There is a cost for the exam ($97/test EXCEPT for AP Research and AP Seminar which are $145/test) that must be absorbed by the student. (For some cases fee reduction is available, please talk to your school counselor for further details.) If the student scores well enough (3, 4 or 5…highest possible is a 5) the class could be accepted by their future college for credit. Students are advised to research this with their college to see which grade is acceptable.
