AP Classes and Exams
TGS AP Exam Policy
It is the policy of The Geneva School (and the Florida Virtual School) that all students taking an AP course are required to take the AP exam. Failure to do so is not an option and would result in loss of “AP credit” for the course (standard credit).
AP Exams Fees
The fee for each exam in 2022 was $97 for all regular testing. Billing for AP exams will be posted to accounts in April. Payment for exams must be received prior to test administration.
AP exams, unless otherwise instructed, will be administered at The Geneva School in the upper school building.
There are many ways to prepare for the AP exams. The Florida Virtual School offers free online review for any student taking an AP exam (they do not need to have taken the course at FLVS). www.flvs.net
Earn College Credit and Placement
More than 90 percent of four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit based on AP exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper-level courses, pursue a double-major, or study abroad.
Research shows that your AP experience can benefit you in several important ways when you reach college:
- AP students are more likely to graduate from college in four years; students who take longer to graduate at public colleges and universities can spend up to $19,000 in tuition for each additional year.
- AP helps students qualify for scholarships: 31 percent of colleges and universities look at AP experience when determining scholarships.
- AP scores will be used by colleges to determine what credit may be given for specific courses. Earning college credit can give a college student some flexibility and may make it easier to graduate within four years, or less in some cases. (AP scores are not used to determine admission to a college or university.)
