Advanced Placement / AP


Advanced Placement (AP) enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.  AP courses, each culminating in a rigorous exam given exclusively in May, provide students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both.  OHS offers AP courses in Art & Design, Art History, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, European History, French Language, Human Geography, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Music Theory, Physics, Psychology, Spanish Language and Culture, Statistics, U.S. Government and Politics, U.S. History, and World History.

Students are not required to take an AP course prior to taking an exam.  College credit policies based upon AP exam scores may be found by checking college catalogs/websites or by using the AP Credit Policy search at

The cost of each AP exam is $100.  OHS students choosing to take an AP exam will be required to pay the full amount for each exam they want to take by the deadline date. 
Registration and payment deadline is March 8, 2024.

Exams ordered after November 8 will incur an additional $40 charge.  Students should be certain they will take the AP exams they sign up for as there is a $40 fee for any ordered but unused exam.  

Registering for an AP exam is a two step process:  Step 1 Registration and Step 2 Payment
  • Step 1 Registration:  Once students have joined their class(es) in their MyAP account, they will be able to indicate if they are going to take the AP exam in May.  All student accounts are set to "Undecided".  Any student wishing to take the exam must change this to "Yes".
  • Step 2 Payment:  Students are encouraged to pay through RevTrak.  Students who prefer to pay by check should see Lindsay Thebeau in the Guidance Office for the registration forms.
    *Please note a service fee of 3.7% will apply for using Rev Trak.

Students who are either enrolled or eligible to participate in the Federal Free or Reduced Price Lunch Program may qualify for a College Board fee reduction on all AP exams they take in a given year.  Qualified students should see the AP Coordinator for more details.

Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for accommodations on AP exams.  Detailed information regarding this process is available at  Students wishing to apply for accommodations must make a written request to the AP Coordinator by January 10, 2024.
