AP, SAT and ACT Resources

  • Advanced Placement (AP) Resources:

    If you are taking an AP exam, please make sure they have done these two (2) things to be ready for their AP exam(s):

    1.  Verify that they are registered for the AP exam - by registering for your AP course in AP Classroom. To do this, they will log into their CollegeBoard account and click AP Classroom. There are links below on how to create your account and joining information. Upon doing this, they should see the confirmation of their exam date(s)/time(s) at the top of the AP Classroom homepage. If they have questions, see your teacher for the Join Code. This is covered for Fall courses in the first week of September and for Spring courses in January.

    2. Mark your calendars (the date AND time) and plan accordingly - CollegeBoard AP Schedule. These exams are set by CollegeBoard - please do not plan events in this window as it is a national exam and must be taken at the date and time listed.
