AP Exams | May 2-13

Dear Parents,

During May of each year, Georgetown Prep administers the Advanced Placement Examinations. The AP Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. It exposes high school students to college-level material through involvement in an AP course, and it gives them the opportunity to show that they have mastered a subject by taking an AP Exam. Colleges and universities may grant credit, placement, or both to students who have done well on the exams.

AP credits provide other benefits. The entering college student who has been given AP recognition may take advanced courses, explore different subject matter areas, enter honors and other special programs, and even complete undergraduate requirements early. It is important to note security procedures and reasons that a student may not take an exam if he were to miss the test date or arrive late.

If you have questions or concerns about the AP exams for your son, please do not hesitate to call or email: 301-214-1231 or agehringer@gprep.org.

We are all proud of the hard work your son has put into his AP course(s), and recognize his part in furthering the excellent academic reputation of Georgetown Prep.
