COURSE OFFERINGS - OCSA offers 24 AP classes and 7 honors level courses. Most AP and honors courses have pre-requisites, so please refer to the Curriculum Handbook, when determining courses for the upcoming school year. If a student does not meet the prerequisites for a course and still wants to take the class, the student may meet with a school counselor to discuss a plan and complete an AP/Honors course waiver form that may enable an opportunity to take the course. Some AP and honors courses have summer assignments; all summer assignment information for the current year is listed below.

AP Exam Information

2022-2023 AP Exam Information

AP exams will be administered in May 2023.  All students currently in an AP class at OCSA are eligible to take a corresponding AP exam. Because there is a sizable monetary obligation to taking AP exams and extensive study time involved, it is important for both students and parents to discuss and determine how many exams the student can realistically manage. Students are encouraged to register only for those exams they are committed to taking. An AP bulletin will be distributed to students in their AP classes in January and can also be accessed on the College Board website.

PURCHASING AN EXAM – Students wishing to take an AP exam this year should register and pay for the exam(s) on OCSA's Student Store at MySchoolBucks.com beginning July 18. The cost for each exam is $98, with the exception of AP Research and AP Seminar; the cost for each of these exams is $146. If your family qualifies for FRLP, the fee is $100 for AP Research and Seminar, $53 for all others. When ordering exams, we highly encourage both student and parent to be present to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. Please print/save your emailed receipt of payment for your records as students may be asked for this for future reference or refunds. The priority deadline for purchasing an exam is Monday, October 31 at 9:00 p.m. Late registration will run from December 1, 2022 through February 28, 2023 and will incur a $40 late fee per exam.

REFUND POLICY - A full refund will be issued for exams cancelled by November 12.  Between November 12 and April 1, a $40 cancellation fee will apply and students can receive a partial refund. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED AFTER APRIL 1.

LATE TESTING POLICY - College Board’s policy for administering alternate AP exams can be found here. OCSA only offers late testing when multiple tests are offered at the same time or in emergency situations. Depending on the circumstances, late testing may require additional fees to cover ordering and proctor fees. 

AP EXAM SCHEDULE AND INFORMATION - Students will be notified of their testing location prior to their exam date. Please refer to the AP Bulletin for any clarification in regards to what should and should not be brought to the exam room.

AP SCORES - In July 2023, students will be able to receive and send their AP scores to colleges by phone with College Board’s automated grade reporting service.
