Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement (AP) enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.

Wayzata High School's AP program continues to grow in the variety of courses offered as well as the numbers of students willing to engage in rigorous academic challenges that match their abilities and interests. AP courses are college courses taught by trained teachers on the high school campus. The AP program offers numerous courses representing a variety of discipline areas to support 34 different AP Exams. The benefits for a student selecting these courses are many.

Exam Schedule

The College Board has released several updates to the AP testing schedule for this spring. The College Board determines what tests will be offered on which days and at what time of the day. They also determine the testing format. After much consideration, Wayzata High School is prioritizing in-person paper/pencil exams as the best option for our students and will follow the College Board's posted schedule for Exam Administration 1, with a few exceptions which are highlighted in the schedule below.

Exam Administration Paper/Pencil - in person at either WHS or Medina Ballroom

All World Languages and Music Theory exams will be done at WHS.

Additional details, including exam start will be shared at a later date.
