Register for your AP exams

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Lakes Community High School offers students the opportunity to take AP exams for the AP classes they are currently enrolled. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. Please consult to confirm test dates, course credit, and placement for individual colleges and universities.

This year each AP exam costs $94. Lakes Community High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. The cost per exam for students who currently qualify for the free or reduced lunch program is $20. Students and parents/guardians requesting financial assistance should contact Mr. Newberry at

Although online registration for AP exams closed at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 16, students may still register for an exam until April 10. The student will need to register in person with Mr. Newberry, and there is a late fee. Please note that we cannot accept registrations after April 10.

Important dates and information to note:

- Registration begins Tuesday, January 16 at 7 a.m.
- Registration ends Friday, March 16 at 9 p.m.
- Registrations after March 16 must be made in person with Mr. Newberry.
- All registered students must attend a pre-admission session. This will take place during the school day.
