AP exams are given Monday through Friday during the weeks of May 7 - 11 and May 14 -18. Registration for exams takes place soon after Winter Break. You will be contacted if financial assistance is available to you. Check with your senior for the days of their individual exams. If you have questions, contact Marianne Kullback. Please have your senior register for exams, and then once your senior is registered at a college/university, check with the school about their policy regarding AP scores. This can determine whether or not a student will want to sit for particular exams.
Apparel: Seniors can wear college apparel from the school they will be attending. This includes hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants etc. Other than college apparel items, free dress guidelines apply.
Attire: Regular uniform, or class T-shirt with regular uniform. This is not a day to wear college sweatshirts/apparel.
Schedule: Seniors will have their final class of the year first thing in the morning. They will then have senior chapel and a special reception hosted by the Alumni Association. The reception will take place at about 10:45 a.m. in the theater courtyard. After the reception, seniors are dismissed for the day. Cumulative tests are ongoing for other grades, so seniors should leave campus.
