AP, IB, PSAT, SAT & ACT Testing

 
AP TESTING
 
Students enrolled in AP classes may take the AP examination in May during spring semester. If students receive a score of 3, 4, or 5, four-year and community colleges may waive the equivalent course at the college level, thus awarding credit for passing AP scores.

AP Testing for the 2017-2018 school year will take place during May 2018.

IB TESTING
 

Students enrolled in IB classes may take the IB examination in May during spring semester. If students receive a score of 5, 6, or 7, many 4-year and community colleges may waive the equivalent course at the college level, thus awarding credit for passing IB scores. Some colleges award college credit for score of 3 or 4, but that decision varies by the institution.

Note: Students on Free or Reduced Lunch may receive a waiver to cover cost of fees. Please review the IB portion of this website for possible scholarship opportunities to fund IB testing costs.
