AP Testing Updates for the 2020-2021 School Year
We have changed the AP exam ordering process for this year. Usually we ask students to order and pay for exams in advance, per the deadlines we receive from the College Board. This year we are not going to require advance registration or payment. AP students can decide whether or not to take exams in May, and at that time payment of $95 for each exam will be due. St. Mary’s will ensure that every student enrolled in our AP classes will be able to take the exam if that is their choice, without any pressure to decide early. Please check with your AP student to make sure they have joined their online AP classroom with College Board. Their AP teacher has the join code, and they will need to create a College Board ID if they haven’t already. Thank you and we hope this eases at least one source of stress!
