UPDATE:  Important Information for Advanced Placement (AP) Exams 2018

Any student who is taking at least one exam is required to attend a pre-registration session.  They are offered as follows -- all session are in lecture hall 1035:

Advanced Placement (AP) exams will be administered during the weeks of May 7-11 & May 14-18.

Students taking one or more AP courses to qualify for the Academic Honors Diploma MUST take the 
corresponding AP exams.

To register for one or more AP exams, students must complete one 2018 AP Exam Registration and Fee Collection Form, have it signed by a parent/guardian, and submit it with the appropriate payment to the Counseling Office by March 9, 2018.

Students must attend one AP Exam Registration Info Session. At this meeting, students will receive the Exam Registration and Fee Collection Form and Bulletin for AP Students and Parents. All students must have a copy of the bulletin, which contains important information about the AP exams. Registration Info Sessions are scheduled as follows:
Feb 20 during AP Classes
Feb 21 during AP Classes
Feb 22 at 1:00 PM in 1037 (for absentees or anyone not in an AP class this semester)

The AP Exam Registration and Fee Collection Form will specify the fees for each exam. Fees may vary by the student’s grade, AP course, Alternate Exam Requests, and free/reduced lunch eligibility. Make checks payable to West Lafayette High School.

Cancelling a test after March 30, 2018 or failing to take an AP exam that the student registered for will result in a $15.00 fee per exam. Any refund will be mailed to the parent at the address provided on the Exam Registration and Fee Collection Form.

Please contact Mrs. Gruss (  if you have any questions about the AP Exam registration and fee collection process.


Complete these steps:
-  Establish residency.  You must live in the WLCSC corporation in order to send your child to this school.  Go here to view the map:  Once you have a lease or purchase agreement, we will need a copy to keep in the student's file.
-  Make an appointment for math placement (and language testing, if your student is not a native English speaker).  Your child will take one or two tests -- one to determine the math class and, if needed, one to determine English language abilities.  You may contact our registrar, Mrs. Jennifer Zink ( or 765-746-0418), to set up those appointments.  When your child comes in for the first test, you should come also to get the enrollment forms.
-  Make an enrollment appointment ( or 765-746-0418).  Once we know the math (and English language) levels, we will be able to place your child in classes.  Please tell Mrs. Zink the name and address of your child's former school so that she may request records from them.
Here is some more information for you to know:
-  We need a copy of your child's birth certificate or passport.
-  We need a copy of your child's immunization record.
-  For those coming from out-of-country, we place students in the grade level that is age-appropriate, even if that grade level was completed already in another country.
