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.
