AP Student and Parent Information for 2021-2022

  • Hello parents and students! As you begin to think about the courses you will take in the 2021-2022 school year, we want to make sure you take our Advanced Placement (AP) Courses into consideration. AP gives students the chance to tackle college-level work while they're still in high school and through taking AP Exams taken at the end of the school year, students can earn college credit and placement. Students also receive a 1.0 GPA boost on each AP course they successfully pass with a C or better (e.g. an A becomes a 5.0 instead of a 4.0 and so on) when calculating your cumulative GPA. While AP classes offer many benefits, they are also rigorous classes with increased expectations on students in terms of both workoad and quality of work. Please be sure to watch the below videos that explain in detail what to expect from each course. Additionally, it is essential to review the AP contract that students and parents must sign before enrolling in an AP course.

    Important Dates

    • Before May 28th, 2021
      • The last day to drop an AP course for any reason is the last day of school, May 27, 2021. To drop an AP course you must email your counselor by this date requesting the drop. Starting May 28, 2021 you will be held accountable to staying enrolled in your selected AP courses and following the expectations outlined in the AP Contract.
    • After May 28th, 2021
      • The earliest you will be considered for changing out of a AP course will be the end of the 1st Quarter of the 2021-2022 school year (exact date TBD)
