A convenient how to guide to prepare for AP Italian
AP Italian exams are rigorous, multiple-component tests that are administered at high schools each May. High school students can earn college credit, placement, or both for qualifying AP Exam scores. 
The College Board is the starting point to gather practical and logistic information about the exam, but it is also very useful to connect with other students who have already taken the course or are enrolled in it. To learn about the AP Italian course click here to get to the College Board pdf 
The AP Italian course is developed by a committee composed of college faculty and AP teachers, and covers the breadth of information, skills, and assignments found in the corresponding college course. 

AP Exams are an essential part of the AP course experience, and help students:

  • Stand out in the admission process
  • Earn academic scholarships and awards from colleges and universities
  • Experience college-level academics now, while they're still in high school
  • Save time and money once they get to college, providing them with more study options and allowing them to move directly into upper-level courses in their field of interest
  • Earn AP Scholar Awards, an academic distinction granted each September by the College Board to students with exemplary AP Exam scores.
AP Calendar

Spring before starting an AP Italian course
Use this website to learn more about the AP Italian Program, and discuss your plans with your parents, teachers and AP Coordinator.
Check if your teacher has posted summer work to be up to speed for when the classes begin, such as a reading list or a selection of Italian movies to watch.

Talk to your AP Italian teacher or AP Coordinator about taking the AP Italian Exams.
If you need testing accommodation Contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Coordinator at your school.
Students with disabilities must submit requests for testing accommodations.
Homeschooled students and students whose schools do not offer AP must contact AP Services to obtain a list of local AP Coordinators and schools where they could arrange to test and must contact AP Coordinators identified by AP Services within the required deadline.
