Advanced Placement Examinations at Burlington High School

In May of this coming Spring, the College Board will be administering the Advanced Placement Examinations to all eligible students.  Students enrolled in an AP course are required to take the AP exam or exams. 

By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major.

Students must register to take AP exams no later than Friday, February 26, 2018.  In order to register all students MUST go to www.totalRegistration.net/AP220470. After registration is complete students MUST print the confirmation page and return it to the BHS Guidance Office, along with a check, for all AP exams ($94.00 each).
