AP EXAM SIGN UP DEADLINE APPROACHING

9th – 12th GRADERS ... AP EXAM SIGN UP IS NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 1st!


If you would like to take an AP Exam in May 2020 ... you MUST SIGN UP NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 1st!!! THAT IS 3 WEEKS AWAY!!! TIME IS RUNNING OUT! Cost per exam is $94.


If you are interested in taking an AP Exam or have questions, please contact the LWA Office or email Sister Joanne Walsh at joannekwalsh@gmail.com


HELPFUL INFORMATION:

Please note, since we do not offer AP Courses at LWA you would need to be motivated enough to self study. The theory behind signing up by November 1st is so that the students (and parents) are vested in the process and are committed to study throughout the year. AP’s are a great way to earn college credits. I have listed below some of the schools in the area that DO accept AP credits. If you are interested in taking the AP Exams in May 2020, you must sign up NOW! There are a lot of study guides you can purchase online. Email me and I will send you the information. I also have some tips on how to self study. You can also study online for FREE through Kahn Academy. That said, the AP Exams that are in line with LWA curriculum and are recommended to take as follows:


9th 

AP Human Geography Note – This exam overlaps with some of the curriculum offered and is one of the easier exams to self study for.

AP Environmental Science Note – This exam overlaps some of the 9th grade Earth Science curriculum and is one of the easier exams to self study for.


10th 

AP World History: Modern

AP European History 


11th 

AP US Government and Politics

AP United States History


12th 

AP English Language and Composition


Special Notes:

AP Biology should be taken after you have taken LWA Biology in 10th AND Physics

*AP Chemistry should be taken after you have taken Chemistry 11th/12th

*AP Physics should be taken after you have taken Physics 11th/12th 

*Note – LWA Chemistry and Physics alternate in 11th/12th

At this time we do not offer a math curriculum that coincides with the AP Math exams that are currently offered.
