Advanced Placement Program
Basic Academy was awarded a grant for the AP program. Students who took Advanced Placement tests last year (May 2019) will have their ap exams paid for this year (May 2020.) Basic will pay for as many tests as you took last year (example: if you took three tests last year, Basic Academy will pay for 3 tests this year.) Those students who order an exam that Basic Academy pays for must sit for the exam in May or they will have a $40 fine put on their school account. For these exams the ap form must be turned in to Mrs. Parry in the counseling office by Friday, October 4th, 2019.
If you did not take an ap exam last year, the cost for each exam is $94. For students who qualify for fee assistance the cost is $30. The fee assistance form must be signed by a parent or guardian and turned in by October 4. Because exams need to be ordered earlier than previous years, a deposit of $40 for a full price exam and $15 for a fee reduced exam is required to be paid to the banker by October 31st and the receipt given to Mrs. Parry in the counseling office. The balance must be paid by March 31st, 2020. The deposit is non-refundable because College Board charges for every exam that is ordered whether the student takes the exam or not. There may be grant money to help pay for these exams; assistance is based on a first-come first-serve basis; therefore your form must be submitted as soon as possible.
