AP Program Testing Volunteers
Last year, Herron Classical Schools students sat for over 900 individual Advanced Placement exams and earned over 1500 hours of college credits!
It is an extraordinary lift for our faculty and staff to proctor these exams while simultaneously holding the final weeks of classes. This year, our scholars have registered for over 1,000 exams for the first time in Herron Classical Schools' history. This means we need your support.
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 1 through Friday, May 12 based on 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 training session in preparation for proctoring.
- 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.
