Advanced Placement Program

Welcome!

Washington-Lee High School’s goal is that every student take one or more AP or IB classes during their four years of high school.


NEWS & NOTES

January 8, 2016

Anyone who is not in an AP class, but who would like to take an AP exam must fill out an Application for AP Exam. Forms are available in the counseling office. Students who are enrolled in an AP class do NOT need to do this. This is only for students who are not enrolled in an AP class, but still want to take the AP exam.

The cost is $92 per test or $53 for students who are enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program. Checks can be made out to Washington-Lee High School. All completed forms with checks/money orders are due Thursday, January 28th.

If you have any questions please see Mr. Glick in room 1216 in the counseling office
