For the 2021-2022 academic year, American School is pleased to offer the following online Advanced Placement (AP) courses:
- AP Biology
- AP Calculus AB
- AP English Literature and Composition
- AP United States History
Enrollment in AP courses for the 2021-22 academic year was open from July 6 to September 3, 2021. Please check back in July 2022 for information about enrolling in AP courses for the 2022-23 academic year.
Since it can take up to three business days for students to have access to all online study materials, we recommend enrolling by August 20 if you wish to begin your course on September 1, but all students who enroll can expect to have access to all online study materials no later than September 10.
All courses must be completed by April 29, 2022.
AP courses cost $200 per course for students already in an American School high school diploma program and $400 per course for all other students. Tuition must be paid in full at the time of enrollment. Please note that additional AP exam fees apply. In addition, students who take the Biology and/or English Literature and Composition will need to purchase additional study materials.
About the AP Program
The AP program is designed to give students the experience of the rigors of college-level studies while still having the support of a high school environment. Students participating in AP have the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school which may help in the college admission process.
Homeschooled students must make arrangements to test at a participating school or authorized test center. We recommend that students contact AP services before enrolling to get the names and telephone numbers of local participating AP coordinators who are willing to test outside students. It is each student’s own responsibility to make such arrangements. Students must contact AP coordinators no later than March 15, 2022 to arrange testing.
There is an additional fee per AP test, separate from the cost of the course, that is paid to the AP coordinator. For more information, please visit https://apcentral.collegeboard.org.
International students (those registering for AP exams outside the United States) should visit http://international.collegeboard.org for additional information.
