Advanced Placement (AP)

AP Exam Fee

Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, FCPS will fund the first 6 AP tests taken by each student for courses in which they are enrolled for high school credit. While FCPS and Woodson encourages all students to take the Exam for courses in which they are enrolled, students will have the opportunity to opt out of the test(s) by completing a form that will be sent out by the school mid-January. This form will include the courses and exams already taken by the student and what courses and exams they are enrolled in for the 2017-2018 school year. It also will state how much, if anything, that student will owe. Each course’s test above the first six will incur a fee of $93. This will be paid through an individual’s My School Bucks Account. Please refer to the FCPS Activity and Test fee information page for more. 

AP Exam Accommodations:

All requests for College Board AP testing accommodations must be submitted to College Board by February 23, 2018.

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.
