Advanced Placement / AP

Advanced Placement (AP) 2020-2021 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 $98.  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 4, 2020.

Exams ordered after November 4 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.
