Lord, give me an open mind so that I may learn from those around me. Amen

All Advanced Placement students are reminded to register and pay for AP exams before next Monday (March 16). If you are in an AP class, you should have received a link to a Google form, which you need to fill out to register for all of your AP tests. Thank you to those who have already done this!

Each exam costs $33. if students qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch, then each test is free but students must still complete the registration form. If you pay by cash, please place in an envelope clearly marked with the student’s first and last name, the names of the tests, and the amount included in the envelope. Please pay the exact amount; change is not available. If you pay by check, please pay for all tests with one check, which can be made payable to DLS AP Program. Remember to include the student’s name in the check memo. Please pay Ms. Carter directly in person in B104.

A limited number of scholarships are available for students who have a financial barrier paying $33 per test but do not qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch. These students should see Ms. Carter ASAP.
