Kell High School Advanced Placement Information

Kell AP Program

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses offer students the chance to experience the rigor of college-level content and course work as well as the opportunity to earn college credit before ever leaving high school!

The AP Program curriculum is developed and supported by the College Board. More information can be found here: https://ap.collegeboard.org 

The powerpoint below offers more information about AP Courses, the benefits of taking AP Classes and Exams, and how they compare to honors level and Dual Enrollment classes. 

See attachments at the bottom of this page for the courses offered at Kell High School and the 2024 exam dates set by College Board. AP Exams are not required for Kell High School AP Students, but they are highly encouraged to take them for the opportunities such exams offer.

AP Exam Information 

AP Exams begin soon! They are May 6 – May 17, 2024. Please review the information below so that you are informed and prepared for your tests. Please direct any questions to an AP Teacher or Amelia Sanders, AP Coordinator. 

Please see the AP Exam schedule on the Kell AP Webpage and note the date and time of all exams for which you are registered: 2024 Testing Schedule

What to bring to the exam: 

  • #2 pencils (not mechanical) 
  • Blue or Black ink pens 
  • Calculator (if needed for the exam) 
  • Dress in comfortable clothing and layers in case the room is too cold/hot 

Test Check-In Time & Procedures: 

  • Morning check-in at 7:30am 
  • Afternoon check-in at 11:30am (Lunch will be provided in the cafeteria between 11:10-11:30 am to those students taking 12pm exams. Students need to make their 2nd block teacher aware of any need to leave early for lunch ahead of test day.) 
  • Report to the upstairs Gym/English hallway corner – check-in and holding will be here before students are permitted in the testing room. 
  • All testing will occur in the Auxiliary gym or a designated room. Locations will be shared by your teacher and at check-in on your testing day. 
  • Students can bring a drink and a snack but will only have access to it at the break. 
  • No bookbag or phone access will be allowed until all exams have been collected and students have been dismissed at the end of the testing period. 
  • All electronic devices are best left at home or in vehicles on testing day. If students bring devices, they will be directed to turn them off and place them in their bags or a communal bin (if the student does not have a bookbag or purse). Ringtone disruptions and phone access during a test are considered testing irregularities and can invalidate all tests. 
  • Students are not permitted to begin an exam late, so it is imperative that they arrive at the noted check-in time. If a student misses an exam, they must contact the AP Coordinator immediately. 
  • If students do not show for the exam or cancel an exam, they will be charged a $40 cancellation fee. 

The 2024 AP® Exam Terms and Conditions are available to review on the College Board AP Exam Terms Page. This agreement details the rules and policies students must follow related to taking the 2024 AP Exams. Students need to review the AP Exam Terms and Conditions prior to testing; they will be bound by these and asked to sign an acknowledgment of these on exam day. 

For AP courses with a portfolio submission (AP Art and Design, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Seminar, and AP Research), students will need to agree to the Digital Portfolio AP Exam Terms and Conditions before submitting their work as final in the AP Digital Portfolio.

Please contact Mrs. Amy Sanders, amelia.sanders@cobbk12.org if you would like to register for an exam not listed, have questions about financial assistance, or any other questions.
