Attendance:  Student attendance in PowerSchool will be marked “SF” (School Function) on the date and time of the AP exam.  Students will report directly to the exam room or bus location.

Lunch Information:  If the schedule shows lunch period 4/5, 5/6, or 6/7 then you will need to choose one of those periods to eat if it is different than your normally scheduled lunch period.

Two Exams on One Day:  Students who are taking two tests in one day, should pack a sack lunch.  They will not have an opportunity to purchase a lunch. If students are testing at two different locations, we will wait to start the second test until the students are present.  

Off Campus Testing Information:

Many of our AP exams will be held at Ackerman Sports and Fitness Center in Glen Ellyn.  Our school will provide transportation. It is important to return to class when you arrive back to school after testing.


Bus Boarding:  On the day of the exam, students who are testing at Ackerman will check in with an adult by showing their school ID in front of the buses on Crescent Blvd.  The buses will not wait for tardy students, therefore students should plan to arrive at school with all required testing materials in their possession. Please review the list below of what to bring or not to bring on the day of your test.

Getting Your Scores in July

  1. Sign up for a College Board account at www.collegeboard.org/register. You may

already have an account if you’ve taken an AP Exam in a prior year, registered for the

SAT, or participated in other College Board programs. Scores are only available online, so

make sure you sign up for a College Board account and are able to login successfully.

  1. Check apscore.org after exams to find out when you can access your scores in July. An

email will also be sent in July to the email address you put on your answer sheet reminding

you how and when to access your scores.

  1. Sign in at apscore.org using your College Board account username and password. You

may be asked to enter your AP number (the 8-digit number on the labels inside your AP

Student Pack) or your student identifier (if you included it on your AP answer sheet) to

access your scores if this is your first time viewing AP scores.

Note: Some scores take longer to process due to late testing or other special circumstances

(e.g., late arrival of testing materials or extra time needed to match your records). If your

score is delayed, this will be indicated on your online score report. Once your score has

been processed, you will receive an email letting you know your online score report has

been updated. If your scores are not available by Sept. 1, contact AP Services for Students.
