    The College Board deadline to register for ALL 2020 AP TESTS (even 2nd semester courses) is Nov. 13, 2020 for 1st semester/year-long courses and Mar. 12, 2021 for 2nd semester courses;  however, I'm sure that Madison Central's school deadline will be earlier. 

    You must join your class section online in AP CLASSROOM in order to register for the exam. 


    AP US GoPo Course Exam is more rigorous for the 2020-21 school year, and cost is now $95 per test, a $1 increase.  Last year, the district paid for one test per student. I do not yet know whether the disstrict plans to pay for one test per student this year. Fee assistance is available through the College Board. Ask your child's counselor.

    TRANSFER CREDITS:  Are you enrolled in a COMMUNITY COLLEGE course? Are you sure that the credit will transfer at the school or in the major of your choice? Here's a tool that will help you access transfer credit information for state schools. (If you plan to attend an out-of-state or private college or university, you'll have to check with that institution.)

     *No DUAL ENROLLMENT courses will be offered by Madison County Schools in 2020-21. However, your child can enroll in virtual classes at Holmes CC for college, but not high school credit.




                    * PLEASE NOTE: All conferences will be digital or cancelled for the 2020-21 school year.

    Government is NOT just another course. It's your guidebook for becoming an ACTIVE CITIZEN. But you can learn a whole lot more about government by joining the MCHS GOVERNMENT CLUB and attending *MS YOUTH LEGISLATURE and/or *MS MODEL SECURITY COUNCIL. If you are interested, check out the video and links.


    Dear Student:
    Thanks for taking the time to check out AP US Go Po
    Please consider enrolling in AP Comparative Government and Politics, as well.
    1. AP COMP GOV is an upper level college course which covers UK, Russia, China, Mexico, Iran, and Nigeria.  It's quite interesting because it's mostly new stuff.  For example, most Americans know that the US has a president and Britain has a Prime Minister, but they aren't really aware that France and Russia have both!  If you are interested in knowing more about how the rest of the world governs itself, this is the course for you.  (JROTC cadets interested in diplomacy, those of you who enjoy Mr. Mayfield's classes, and those who participate in things like the GLOBAL TRADE SUMMIT and MODEL SECURITY COUNCIL will want to sign up for APCG.

    3.   Check out this video to see what your life would be like if you were a Russian teen.  Watch 8:43 - 10:22 for a real shocker!  Bet the summer camp you attended was nothing like this Putin youth camp!
