Advanced Placement (AP) and College Before College (CBC) Announcements:
College Before College – Rising 11th and 12th grade students interested in taking tuition-free college courses after school hours in the fall are encouraged to meet with the AP/ISSP Coordinator the winter/spring before to discuss options, since each college maintains its own test score and GPA requirements and follows a distinct application process. Go to https://isspinfo.wordpress.com/ to review CBC info. Contact Julie.Reinshagen@new-haven.k12.ct.us for more information.
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses – The Advanced Placement Program provides high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students not only gain college-level skills, but in some cases may also earn college credit, dependent on their AP test score and the college expected. AP examinations, given nationally in May at a time and date specified by the College Board, will be taken by all registered students. Email Mathew.Nierenberg@new-haven.k12.ct.us for more information.
Parental consent/signature is necessary for placement in each AP course, along with acknowledgement that students will take the AP Exam in May on a day/time nationally specified by College Board.
Students and parents will sign an “AP Student Contract” for each AP class at the start of that course. Students not completing the required “AP Student Contract” at the start of the course will be dropped from the course.
The New Haven Public School District, in conjunction with the Connecticut State Department of Education, pays for Advanced Placement Examination fees. However, it should be noted that registered AP students not taking the AP Examination/s will incur an obligation current with the testing costs of that year. This cost will be filed as a financial obligation and must be fulfilled prior to release of grades, transcripts, schedules, or diplomas.
