AP Exam Opt-Out Forms

Individual letters and opt-out forms were sent home to students registered in AP Courses on October 1st. The letter explains what exams the student is registered for and how much, if anything a student will owe to take an exam.  Any student who has taken more than six AP Exams in their high school career will pay $94 per exam.  This fee will be paid through an individual’s My School Bucks Account. Please refer to the FCPS Activity and Test fee information page for more. 

Any student who wishes to not take an AP Exam must return the opt-out letter to Student Services by October 25th. No late forms will be accepted. 

If you have any questions contact Student Services.

Woodson AP Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses meet a prescribed syllabus developed by the College Board. These courses represent college level study. Woodson offers coursework to prepare students for more than twenty AP exams. 

AP Courses are open to all students at Woodson. However, students who wish to enroll in an AP course without a recommendation from their current teacher in that AP’s respective subject will need parental permission. It is important that students make wise choices based on their time availability and what courses best suit them. Please refer to the AP Expectations to learn more about what students can expect from each course throughout the year.
