College Board Assessments

BCPS welcomes homeschooled students wishing to take Advanced Placement Exams during the 2020-2021 school year. Those who plan to take one or more AP exam(s) should complete the electronic form no later than 4:00 PM (EST) on Friday, October 16th.  Our schools will be unable to honor late requests. 

Students will take the AP exams at their zoned high school.  If the zoned high school does not offer a particular exam, the parent will be notified if there is an alternative location that can accommodate the homeschooled student. If BCPS does not offer the AP exam at any high school, the parent will be notified to seek an alternate location outside of BCPS. 

Mrs. O'Connor will send the information provided in the electronic form to the appropriate high schools and send a confirmation email to parents. AP Test Coordinators will contact parents to share information about payment and accompanying details.
