New AP Test Registration Information:


Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Ponderosa High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2017 AP exams, students at Ponderosa High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $98.00. Ponderosa High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Mrs. Lisa Woods,, in the Ponderosa Counseling Office to learn more.

Online Exam registration will begin on Mon, Jan 9, 2017 at 8:00 AM and end on Wed, Mar 1, 2017 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students need to visit:

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Ponderosa High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.  Total Registration will charge a $2.75 fee for each partial payment a family makes.  Students/Parents will choose whether they desire to pay their entire balance without an additional fee or make a partial payment for a fee of $2.75.
