AP Testing Information
AP Pre-Registration Schedule
We are hard at work preparing for AP exams from May 2-13! All students who are registered for an AP exam need to attend pre-registration to fill out demographic information prior to their AP Tests. The schedule for pre-registration can be found here.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help with AP test proctoring! Oakton High School students will take over 2900 AP exams over two weeks in May, and parent support will help administer them smoothly.
If you are able to give your time, we ask that you sign up online. You may proctor any exam as long as your child is not taking that exam and you are not a teacher or professor in that subject.
During preregistration, students are receiving a red or pink letter that details their AP exams, locations, and an opportunity to check in late for afternoon exams or leave early after a morning exam. Students should bring their signed red or pink form to the Gold Office no later than Thursday, April 28th. If you need a new form, you can see Mrs. Burke in the gold office!
Tutor-a-Thon April 27!
The Center for Collaborative Learning will be hosting another Tutor-a-Thon on April 27th from 3:00-6:00 in the cafeteria. Our beach-themed event will focus on AP test and final exam preparation. All students are welcomed and encouraged to sign up with their teacher prior to April 27th. There will be food and lots of prep!
