High school students across the country and around the world take AP courses and exams to challenge themselves, explore their interests, and earn college credit and placement. Designed to measure how well students mastered the content and skills of an AP class, AP exams are given every May.
The State of Indiana requires students to sit for AP exams in order to qualify for the Academic Honors Diplomas as well as the new Graduation Pathway requirements. Therefore, any student at Noblesville High School enrolled in a College Board Advanced Placement course will be required to sit for the corresponding exam. Cumulative grade point averages will be re-calculated retroactively without the grade weight for students who do not take the exam. The cost of AP assessments are decided by the College Board and are currently $98 with a $7 administration fee at Noblesville High School for courses in Art, Social Studies, and World Language. All other exam fees are currently covered by the State of Indiana and are, therefore, subject to the $7 administration fee only.
