AP Program Testing Volunteers
Last year, Herron Classical Schools students sat for over 1,000 individual Advanced Placement exams and earned over 1800 hours of college credits. 2023 was also our first year of our volunteer program; our volunteers ensured that educators could be focused on students and our schools for over 90 hours!
Staffing our proctor slots for AP testing is an extraordinary lift for our faculty and staff while simultaneously holding the final weeks of classes. This year, our scholars have registered for over 1,200 exams--an increase of more than 200 from last year. That means we’re also looking to our community to increase support for these hardworking students, faculty, and staff.
Do you have one or more half days to spare in the first two weeks of May? By volunteering to serve as an AP proctor, you help us keep our teachers in their classrooms for the final weeks of school. For more information on how to volunteer, read the details below.
- We have exams Monday, May 6 through Friday, May 17 based on the College Board’s required schedule. Generally morning sessions run from about 7:30AM to about 12:30PM, and afternoon sessions are 11:30AM to about 4:30PM. A detailed schedule can be viewed here.
- Volunteers will support in a space with one or more of our own staff taking the lead.
- A limited background check will be completed prior to proctoring for scheduled volunteers.
- You are welcome to volunteer for one session, or as many as you would like!
- Volunteers will attend a one-hour initial training session and a 30-minute final preparation session in order to make sure you are fully ready and comfortable with your role.
- Per College Board, volunteers:
- Do not need to have any background in education.
- Can be retired or previous teachers, who may serve as proctors for exams in a subject area other than the one they now teach or have ever taught.
- May not volunteer for a given exam in the year in which an immediate family or household member may be taking that specific exam. Immediate family includes one's parents, siblings, children, grandparents, and spouse.
