Changes to the AP Program for 2019-2020

Students planning to take AP (Advanced Placement) courses in 2019-2020 must be aware of major changes coming to the exam registration process.  The most notable changes the College Board has implemented for 2019-2020 are:

  •  Register and pay for exams by November 8, 2019.  Exams are $97 each
  •  Exams ordered after November 8, 2019, will incur an additional $40 charge.
  •  Unused or canceled exams will also incur a $40 charge

AP Exams will take place May 4-15, 2020.  Exam registration is now open.  To order an exam, students must complete both of the following:

  1. Log into their College Board AP account (myap.collegeboard.org) and indicate "YES" they will be taking the AP exam for the specified class.

Advanced Placement (AP) 2019-2020 school year


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 History, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, European History, French Language, German Language, Human Geography, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Music Theory, Physics, Psychology, Spanish Language and Culture, Statistics, Studio Art, 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 www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy.

The cost of each AP exam is $97.  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 NOVEMBER 8, 2019.

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.  Students are encouraged to pay through Rev Trak.   Please note a service fee of 3.7% will apply for using Rev Trak.

Advanced Placement Off-Campus testing for Spring 2020

For students interested in taking Advanced Placement (AP) exams in the spring of 2020, testing will be held during the first two weeks of May, as scheduled by the College Board.  The testing location will be at St. Louis Community College South County campus (4115 Meramec Bottom Road).  Students planning to test in any area, except foreign language or Music Theory, should plan on taking their AP exam(s) at the STLCC South County campus.  Off campus testing gives our students the best opportunity to maximize their scores by minimizing distractions, improving testing conditions, and eliminating logistical issues that exist when testing at Oakville High School.  Due to the technology needed to complete the foreign language and Music Theory exams, their testing locations will remain at Oakville High School.

 

Per the College Board schedule, there will still be morning and afternoon exam sessions, beginning promptly at 8:00am and 12:00am respectively.  Students taking a morning exam will need to provide their own transportation to the STLCC South Campus understanding that testing will begin promptly at 8:00am.  Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the exam.  A shuttle will be provided to take students back to Oakville after their morning exam is over, if necessary.  A shuttle will also pick up students from Oakville for afternoon exams at approximately 11:10am and take them to the STLCC South Campus.  Students taking an afternoon exam will need to make sure they arrange for a ride home once testing is finished.  Most afternoon exams will not conclude until approximately 3:30pm. 

 

Students who have a parking spot at Oakville High School and typically drive to school can drive their own cars to the off-campus testing site.  Students who are driving themselves or riding with another student must turn in a Driving Permission Form complete with parent/guardian signature.  Students must be on time as no one will be allowed in the testing rooms after testing has begun.  Food and drink is not permitted in the testing rooms, unless approved by the College Board, so students should make arrangements to eat lunch either before or after testing.  Cell phones and other electronic devices are also prohibited in the exam rooms.  If a student brings an electronic device to the exam room, it will be collected by the exam proctor and returned to the student after the exam is over.  There will be a testing coordinator on hand at STLCC to help students find their exam rooms.  Please contact the AP coordinator, Chris Ventimiglia, with questions at (314) 467-7102 or ventimigliac@msdr9.org.
