Advanced Placement

  • Midlothian ISD offers many Advanced Placement courses through College Board to those students who are interested in pursuing college level courses while still in high school. These courses are equivalent to introductory level college courses, and the potential to earn college credit is possible if a specific level of achievement is met on the AP exam.

    Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, the AP® Program is introducing new resources and processes designed to help students earn college credit and placement. Students will get personalized feedback through new digital tools that provide daily support for every AP classroom. Teachers will be able to track student progress throughout the year. 

    Here are important changes that parents and students need to know: 

    Fall Only and Full Year Courses

    • AP Exams are now ordered in the fall. Students will have to make the decision to take the exam much earlier than in previous years.

    To get ready for the coming school year, please encourage your student to sign up for a College Board account if they do not already have one. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so if your student created one for the PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT®, or College Board Opportunity Scholarships, they are all set. They will need to have their username and password available at the beginning of the school year.
