There is an important change in how you will get your AP scores. This July, your AP scores will only be available online. You will not get scores in the mail. To get your AP scores, you must sign up for a free College Board account at apscore.org. Go to this site for more information and instructions. All students who took AP exams will receive a paper/pencil copy of instructions via their AP teachers on Monday, May 13, 2013. Copies of these instructions can be picked up in guidance also.
The dates for the DE Placement tests have been changed. The April 17th and 18th dates for DE placement testing has been changed to May 21st and 22nd. Students who plan to take a DE class next year will need to take the placement test on the May dates instead of the April dates. Sign up in guidance to reserve a spot. See Mrs. Miller in the Counseling Center with questions.
Any student planning to take an AP exam is required to pay for it before March 25th. The fee for each AP exam this year is $89.00. Money can be turned in to Mrs. Miller in the Counseling Center or Mr. Griffin in the library. Please make checks payable to JMHS or bring in the exact amount of cash. Separate checks are not needed for each exam. Students will be reimbursed for their exams by FCPS if they score a 3 or higher on the exam. See Mrs. Miller with questions.
Any JM Junior or Senior interested in taking the ASVAB should sign up in guidance NOW! The ASVAB will be given at JM on March 13, 2013 in the library at 8:00 A.M. Reserve your spot by signing up in the Counseling Center. Deadline to sign up is Friday March 1.
Huntington Learning Center is providing an SAT Workshop on Tuesday, March 15th at the Salem Church Library in Fredericksburg. It will run from 6 to 7pm. If you have questions, please call 540-548-8110. Questions regarding the SAT test and college admissions will be discussed.
The results for the Compass Tests that the juniors took in April were distributed today (May 19th) during the home room period. Students were given copies of their scores and an informational sheet explaining how to interpret them. Two representatives from Germanna Community College came to explain the advantages of taking the Compass Tests and how to determine if they are “college ready.” We have sign up sheets in guidance for any students interested in college reading or math reinforcement. We also have a sign up sheet for students who need to test. Dual enrollment students can not take a class without passing test scores. Please contact Heidi Miller in the Counseling Center for additional information.
