AP (Advanced Placement) Tests

Seniors can take an AP exam in order to "test out of" certain college courses.  Usually these Seniors will have taken Honors or AP courses of the same nature prior to taking the AP exam(s).  The AP exam(s) is taken near the end of their Senior year as they are applying for college.  Their score(s) will determine whether they will need to take the course in college or not. See this for a full list of AP exams.

At CCS, certain AP exams will be given on school grounds during the school year. Please register for each exam through Ms. Cora Binder, Guidance Counselor at the Junior/Senior High Campus. 

2016-2017 Registration Deadline:  TBD - Exam Fees $TBD/per test to be submitted to Ms. Binder (Checks made payable to CCS). Obviously, it is wise for students taking these exams to arrive earlier than their start time.
