AP tests at Boarding School
I've seen a lot of threads regarding how a school's AP curriculum, or lack thereof, will affect college apps, but I haven't seen any threads regarding the AP tests that are needed for college credit. Considering that a lot of NE boarding schools don't officially offer AP classes or follow AP curriculum, I was wondering whether students would even take the AP tests after completing the equivalent of that course at boarding school? If so, do the schools offer all the AP tests during the 2 week testing period or do students have to individually schedule each test? Additionally, would it even be worth putting in the effort to take the AP tests and self study sections that were not taught during the course or would we be better of spending that time in classes or working on actual homework, ECs, etc? Any insight or experience from boarding school students, parents, alums would be really helpful. Thanks!12 replies
