AP Test Payment/Registration Details: Payment is due between February 22 – March 16.

Pick one up from the business office, teacher, or counselor. Forms & payment(s) must be completed and turned into the business office for all AP exams that you are planning to take. Payment per AP exam is $92.00**. Some of our tests are administered at the LSSD building. For those tests, students will have to provide their own transportation. Any student in need of transportation needs to tell their AP teacher or contact Mr. Willie in the counseling center. Parking is limited so carpooling is a great idea. You may park in the lower level of the district office (do not block the courier’s lane) or down the road by the fire station. **Students who qualify for the reduced AP testing fee must see Mr. Willie in the counseling center.
