Students will have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement examinations during the month of May. The advantages of taking these exams as well as the format and content of the exams are described in the 2016-2017 Bulletin for AP Students and Parents (available in the student's Guidance Office) and will be discussed in the AP classes. The on-line registration process will begin on January 20 and the deadline to register will be March 22.
This on-line registration will walk you smoothly through each step of registering your student for their AP exams. All major credit cards are accepted.
The fee for each examination is $100.00. Your child may qualify for a free or reduced exam if they currently qualify under the federal lunch program. A screen at the end will ask for a waiver and apply any applicable discounts if desired. Please contact the Gifted Services Department at 450-6056 if you have questions concerning your eligibility or would like information to complete the process.
Payments may also be made in person at the Worthington Education Center, 200 E. Wilson Bridge Road.
