Click here to view the AP Test Dates May 2024

- Students who are taking any AP course this school year are required to take the AP Test in May.  Students who do not take their exam will have the AP designation removed from their transcript and thus the GPA weight as well.

- Some exams will be offered only in a Digital format (English Literature 12th grade, US History, Computer Science Principles, English Language 11th grade, World History).  Students will be required to bring their fully charged Chromebook and be able to log in to their College Board account (same as AP account).

- Start Times are when all students are expected to be in the room and seated so that we can begin with AP Instructions to allow us to start exams on time.

- Finish Times are approximate.  Students are required to stay until the exam is completed for everyone in the room.

Contact Mr. McCaslin, Director of Counseling and AP Coordinator, if you have any questions at emccaslin@fcps1.org 

 


FAFSA Questions - Contact our Career Center to get hands-on assistance in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.


AAPPL Test Registration - Students who are fluent in languages other than English can either take this test for course credit (native speakers only) or for a certificate of biliteracy (students who have taken many years of a language).  If you have any questions, contact your counselor for more details.


Campus Portal Account Access - Here is where parents or students can log in to access important student information such as:  Report Cards, Schedules, Unofficial Transcripts, the Academic Planner, Attendance, and more. 

If you have any questions or need any help, please contact the Counseling Office at 540-422-7367 or email us (Staff information is located on this webpage).
