    Are you ready to take an AP Exam?  

    The first step in the process for registering for an AP Exam - teachers have shared a join code with students in their classes along with instructions for signing in and joining the class section via myap.collegeboard.org.  At this point, all students should have completed this process.  If you have not joined the appropriate class/classes, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.  Once you have joined the class, you will need to indicate on this site if you plan to take the exam.  Below is an example of what you will see.  Click on the yellow “Register for Exam” box and then indicate your intentions:

    Either indicate “Yes” if you plan to take the AP Exam or “No” if you do not want to take the AP Exam.  Undecided is not an option after November 1.  If you have indicated “Undecided” after November 1, it will be assumed that you do not intend to take that particular AP Exam and Mr. Bischof will make the appropriate change to the order.  If you indicate “No”,  you do not need to do anything else.

    If you DO want to take that AP Exam and have indicated “Yes” on the myap.collegeboard.org website, you will need to bring a check/cash for $95.00/per exam to the School Counseling Office, made out the Spring Grove Area School District.  This will ensure that a test will be ordered for you.  If you qualify for the Free/Reduced Lunch Program, see your school counselor as you may qualify for a fee reduction.  You will also need to indicate that you qualify for a fee reduction on the myap.collegeboard.org website after indicating “Yes”.

    If you are taking multiple exams, follow this process and pay this amount for each AP Exam you plan to take.  You can start bringing in payments immediately.

    AP testing schedule for Spring Grove Area High School is in the spring - Please be sure to review the following schedule carefully to determine the date and time of your exam(s).

    As the school year nears an end, please remember that June 20 is the deadline for you to indicate the recipient of your free score report through My AP.

    You may indicate one college, university, or scholarship program to receive a free copy of your AP score report. To do this, you must:

    1.

    Sign in to My AP.

    2.

    Go to My AP Profile.

    3.

    Click the Score Send tab.

    The PSAT provides students with the opportunity to prepare for the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) by experiencing a smaller, shorter version of the test.  It is a “warm-up,” and it will give you a prediction on how you would perform on the SAT. 

    The PSAT is also attached to the NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.)  High enough scores on this exam as a Junior, can help students earn a chance to enter the National Merit Scholarship Program  to earn money for college.
