On September 10, 2021, I will send the information you provide to your zoned high school (based on your home address). The school’s PSAT Coordinator will contact you after that date to set up a time to complete the paper registration and to pay for the student’s test.

Typically, homeschooled students take the AP exams at their zoned high schools. If a high school doesn’t offer a particular course/exam, then we find the next closest high school for you that offers the exam. The information that you provide on the Microsoft Form is sent to the high schools. Someone from the high school will contact you for the formal registration of the exams and for payment.
