Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Information

for Orange High School Students

 

It is now time to purchase Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.  AP Exams are students’ opportunity to show what they know and what they can do.  Taken each May (May 6th - May 17th, 2019) by students all over the world, the AP exam is the final step students take after a year of hard work in their AP class. These standardized exams are designed to measure how well students have mastered the content and skills of the course -- a successful score could even earn students credit and advanced placement in college.

 

Students can begin purchasing their AP exam(s) on Monday, February 25th – Tuesday, March 12th by 3:30pm. 

·         February 25th – March 28th: students will be able to purchase their AP exam(s) during their AP class.

·         March 4th – March 12th: students will be able to purchase their AP exam(s) during the mornings (7:30 am-7:50 am), break, lunch, or after school by 3:30 pm. 

 

To purchase an AP exam(s), students must bring the completed 2019 AP Exam Registration Order Form and payment to Mrs. DaSilva/Mrs. Reyes in the main office.  Students must have their school ID at the time of payment.  Payments are to be made by cash, money order, or check (payable to Orange High School) with the student’s full name and student ID in the memo section.
