We are excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of online registration for AP testing through FamilyID (www.familyid.com).  FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to sign-up for AP testing, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs. 

Anyone who wishes to participate in AP testing must create a FamilyID account.  Parents/Guardians must be part of the account/registration process.  Families that already have a FamilyID account (anyone who tried out for a sport had to create an account) do not need to create a new account.  But, you will still have to visit the link listed below and register for the AP test via FamlyID.  You may create a FamilyID account at any time, but you cannot register for an AP test until February 1st.
