Dear Parent or Guardian:
Brighton High School is proud to participate in the Advanced Placement (AP) program. The Advanced Placement program is owned by College Board, which has very specific guidelines that are required of all the participating schools around the country, including the cost, dates, and times of the exams. The AP program is meant to be a standardized measure of a student’s knowledge base in specific content areas. It is also intended to provide high school students with an opportunity to experience a college level curriculum. Research strongly supports the hypothesis that a college-like experience in high school leads to greater success in college as measured by GPA and the number of years to complete college.
For the 2019 AP exams, students at Brighton High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. The registration process will replace the pre-registration process that has been required in the past. Each AP exam will cost $97.00. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Jenna Miller in the Brighton Counseling Center. Online registration is open now through Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 11:59, and will continue through Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 11:59 PM with a late fee. After registration closes no additional tests will be ordered. In order to register, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/450362 to register. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. However, we strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered. Brighton High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration.
Please note the important dates for the registration process this year. No exceptions will be made.
