Changes to Advanced Placement (effective 2019 SY)

  1. Students will have access to more AP practice and feedback resources.
  2. AP exams will be ordered in November. This means that a student who drops an AP course, due to extenuating circumstances, after this deadline, will incur a cancellation fee of $45 for their AP exam.
  3. Students taking AP Courses will receive an AP Course Enrollment Form (see below) when meeting with their counselor for academic advising.
