In order to show our values of student-centered learning and depth over breadth of content, Marin Academy has moved away from AP courses. That said, some students, for various reasons, choose to study for and take the Advanced Placement (AP) exams in certain subject areas. While our advanced and honors courses are not AP courses, students who pursue additional work and preparation have the potential to do well on these exams.

The college counseling office will send instructions about AP registrations in January typically. These tests only happen once a year during the middle of May and MA only hosts exams that have a minimum of 5 students signed up. The cost is $125 per exam (subject to change) with a $40 late charge. If for any reason a student has reserved an exam but fails to sit for the exam, the full exam fee will still be charged.
