AP Testing

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools, colleges, and universities. It exposes high school students to college level material through involvement in an AP course, and it gives them the opportunity to show what they have mastered by taking an AP Exam. Colleges and universities can then grant credit, placement, or both to students who have completed the exam. The granting of credit and/or placement is at the discretion of each individual college and university.

For more information on the AP test please see the flyer
<click here for flyer>

The test will be administered during May of 2023. If a student signs up and is unable, or chooses not to take it, forfeits $40.00 to the AP program. Any student who qualifies for free or reduced lunch, should see Mr. Dachel to learn about a reduced fee. 

The ASVAB is designed to help students in career exploration for interested students in grades 10-12. This years test plans to be held on Wednesday, December 6th, 2023.
