    Dear AAPS AP Students and Families, 

    The Ann Arbor Public Schools is pleased to offer Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.  For 2022-2023, exams will be administered in-person and will be full length, traditional AP exams. Please note that all AP exams administered by AAPS take place on the specific date of the AP exam and at the site address below. Transportation is NOT provided by AAPS and is the responsibility of the AP student:
