Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Registration IS OPEN!!!

Zionsville Community High School will offer Advanced Placement (AP) exams May 7-18, 2018.  Please read this letter and the registration instructions carefully before completing and submitting your exam registration and payment.

Please discuss your exam registration with your parents and give careful thought to which exams you plan to take.  If you are uncertain about whether you need to take an exam to fulfill Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma requirements, be sure to check with your school counselor.

AP Exam registration will be completed online.  This registration will take just a few minutes. The cost of AP exams is $94.00 per exam, with the exception of English, math, and science exams which will be offered at a cost of $20.00 per exam due to State of Indiana exam subsidies.  (Students must be juniors or seniors and be enrolled in the course at ZCHS to receive the discounted fee for these exams).

In order to register, students should go to www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/153900  

The deadline to register is March 2, 2018.  This is the final day that registrations will be accepted!

**Once you have submitted your online exam registration, you are REQUIRED to print the registration confirmation and bring it WITH payment to the Main High School Counseling Office by the deadline.  We will not accept registrations without payment attached.  Checks should be made payable to ZCHS, and the words “AP Exam” should be included in the memo section.**

More information about AP exams can be found here:  https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/takingtheexam

Greater Indianapolis Northside College Fair

Wednesday, March 14, 2018; 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.; Grand Park

The event is sponsored by a consortium of high schools on Indy’s Northside as a way to provide access to college information for local students. Over 100 colleges/universities will be represented at the fair! The event is free, and students in all grade levels are welcome to attend. College fairs are an efficient way to obtain information about many colleges in one place and in a relatively short period of time. No matter where your student is in their post-secondary planning process, we encourage them to take advantage of this chance to gather information, ask questions, and/or make connections with college representatives. Of course, parents are encouraged to attend too!

Students are encouraged to register for the fair in advance at http://indianaacac.gotocollegefairs.com. Registered students will receive a barcode that they can bring with them to the college fair in order to share their information with admission reps. Click Here for our GINCF Flyer
