Welcome to Advanced Placement at the International Academy!
A Few Words from your AP Coordinator
I am excited to share this journey with you this school year! I will be updating this newsletter each month with important AP information, announcements and resources you will not want to miss! As you begin working in your AP course(s), keep in mind AP courses are rigorous for a reason. The rich content in these courses will instill knowledge and critical thinking skills that will help prepare you to be successful in college. AP courses strengthen high school transcripts and make students more desirable during the college admission process. Due to this, the coursework is much more challenging than an average high school course, and the expectations for the students are set very high. With that said, please always remember that I believe in the power of YOU! I know that you are prepared academically and personally for the challenges AP will bring your way! If you ever have any questions, concerns or just need a pep talk please reach out to me. I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Taking the AP Exam
K12 International Academy does not administer AP Exams. Mrs. Taylor will assist you in locating a testing site in your local area. You will be provided with more information regarding test registration as we approach the date of the exam, but you do need to know the CEEB Code and the online provider code for K12 International Academy when you register. These codes are very important!
CEEB Code: 471067 Online Provider Code: 132
The 2019 AP Exams will be administered over two weeks in May: May 6 through 10 and May 13 through 17. Click here to see the 2019 AP Exam Schedule.

Agreeing to Exam Security Policy and Procedures
All AP students deserve a fair and uniform testing experience, whether they are taking the exam in Connecticut, California, or China. To help make this happen, the AP Program requires each and every AP student to read, agree to and follow the “Test Security and Test Administration Policies and Procedures” that appear each year in the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents. On exam day, before you can take your AP Exam, you will be required to sign your answer sheet, indicating that you have read through and agree to follow all the policies and procedures in the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents. You will also need to sign the covers of your multiple-choice and free-response booklets, affirming statements related to the security of the exam. You can access the bulletin here.
