Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Pine Bush High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2019 AP exams, students at Pine Bush High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $98. Pine Bush High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams.

Online Exam registration will begin on Monday, Nov 19, 2018 and end on Mon, Feb 25, 2019. In order to register, students should click on this link. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the PDF of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Pine Bush High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure your payment has been received.
