    Here is some of the most important exam information from College Board:

    • Face-to-face exams will not take place—students will instead take a 45-minute online free response exam from their homes
    • There will be two possible testing dates for each subject—more info on dates is coming from College Board on April 3rd
    • Exams will only cover material that most teachers would have covered in class by early March
    • Exams can be taken on computers, tablets, or smartphones, with options of taking photos of handwritten work as well
    • Remote learning resources are available from College Board here—including live classes and recordings delivered by AP teachers starting tomorrow (3/25)
    • Any student currently registered for an exam can cancel at no charge—students MUST notify Holly (hcrittenden@cherrycreekschools.org) to do this, but we fully encourage students to still take the exam (deadline for cancellations will be provided as soon as College Board provides more info on test dates)

AP Program

  • With AP®, students can take college-level course work in high school. When students take AP courses and exams, they demonstrate to college admission officers that they have sought out an educational experience that will prepare them for success in college and beyond. Performing well on an AP Exam means more than just the successful completion of a course. Most colleges and universities accept successful exam scores for credit, advanced placement, or both. And, research consistently shows that students who are successful in AP typically experience greater academic success in college than those who don’t participate in AP.
