Testing Out

  • On this site you will find information about testing out for AAPS high school level courses.  If you are looking for information about testing out for 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 within 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. 

    High School Testing Out for the 2024-25 school year will occur on these dates:

    Thursday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 25, 2024

    Each exam will be administered on one of these two possible dates only. Advanced registration is required during April. Specific testing schedules will be emailed to students at the close of registration in mid-May and will be based on how many and which assessments a student is taking. 

    Testing will take place in-person on these dates. Anticipate that students will need to be present at the designated test center (one of our AAPS schools) on the scheduled day of testing. We will provide the specific test location, and any safety protocols that will be in place when precise schedules are emailed to all registered students at the close of registration in mid-May.

    Before registering:

    It is important that you review the course content. See the syllabus link on the left, and all information posted on this page. Updated syllabi for 2024 will be posted by April 3, 2024. Review all updates before registering to ensure you are viewing the most current version of the syllabus.


    Registration will be open from April 3 - May 3, 2024. The registration form will be linked below during this time frame.

    Detailed steps for registration are listed below.


    After you register:
    Students will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of registration.

    While all HS tests will be administered on (June 20 or June 25), 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 by email shortly after the close of the registration window in mid-May.
