AP Exam registration deadline November 11th

This year the AP Exam registration deadline for all full year AP classes is November 11th, 2020. Yes, that is really early for AP Exams that will take place in May 2021! Students who register and pay for their AP exam fees before the November 11th deadline will pay $60 for each exam. After the November 11th deadline, all exams will cost students $90 per exam. This is due to a late registration fee, which was instituted by the College Board last year. Learn more about registration.

Indigenous Peoples' Day is October 12th

Indigenous Peoples’ Day honors the past, present, and futures of Native peoples throughout the US. The holiday recognizes the legacy and impact of colonialism on Native communities, and it also celebrates the cultures, contributions, and resilience of contemporary Native peoples. It’s celebrated on the second Monday of October, and this year, that’s October 14.
