Advanced Placement

  • AP Registration Information & Policies

    Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Lewisville High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. 

    The College Board is launching a new online system and adjusting registration windows for Advanced Placement (AP) exams beginning in the 2019-20 school year.   The new online system will provide students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses with additional supports.
