Dear Academic Approach Families:

As we close the week, we have updates from the College Board re: AP exams and from school districts on extended school closures

Modified AP Exams

This morning, the College Board announced that AP exams this year will be administered as 45-minute online exams for students to take at home. The content tested has been revised to exclude content that could not be taught before schools closed, and the question types will only include free-response questions. A detailed breakdown of what content will be included on each test can be found here on the College Board’s website.

Beginning next week, the College Board will offer free materials for self-study. Our instructors are available to tailor these materials and others to a student’s specific academic needs.

Extended School Closures for Illinois

For our Illinois families, please note that Chicago public schools’ closure was extended to April 20th, and the state-wide school closures have been extended to April 8th. In addition, the spring NWEA-MAP test for high school admissions has been cancelled.

Going Forward

For your convenience, we have compiled our daily updates on this website for you to review and share with others. We will continue to update you as we learn more. 

Be well,
Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO
