Testing Out

  • Note: Updated information for 21-22 school year (testing in June 2021) testing out opportunities will be posted in the coming weeks! Check back soon.

    On this site you will find information about testing out of AAPS high school level courses.  If you are looking for information about testing out of middle school level math courses, please click here.  

    “Testing out” is a process where a student completes a test or task designed to show understanding of the content addressed in a particular course. If a student meets a minimum level of performance, they will be awarded credit for that course. Testing out is available only for courses that are required for graduation.

    NOTE:  If you reviewed this information prior to May 13, we encourage you to read this page again as information has been updated. In particular, pay attention for minor modifications to portfolio requirements.

    High School Testing Out for the 2020-21 school year will occur: July 8 and July 9, 2020.

    Testing format and details are being modified slightly to accommodate a safe testing opportunity for all students who choose to participate. 

    Each exam will be administered online on one of these two dates only. 

    Before registering:

    It is important that you review the course content (i.e.syllabus)and all information posted on this page. 


    Please read, follow the steps below, and use the provided link to the register.  

    Registration will be open from May 13 - June 3.


    After you register:

    Students will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of registration. 

    While all HS tests will be administered on July 8 and July 9, the specific time and date for each test will be determined by the registration volume and the specific test(s) each student plans to take. We will provide testing schedules and detailed information on a rolling basis during the registration window. Expect this information in the latter part of the registration window after May 22. We encourage students to register as early as possible to help us with planning.
