Guidance Google Classrooms: All students have been asked to join their class' Guidance Google Classroom. If you have not done so as of yet, please email your guidance counselor to request the class code. Guidance counselors post important information and ILP assignments to the Guidance Google Classroom.
Advanced Placement Course Registration:
Registration for Advanced Placement (AP) exams will take place this fall as College Board implements a new on-line registration process. Students must register online, using their College Board account. Each AP course/teacher has a unique “join code”. Students must register for all of their AP Courses, using the specific join code for each of their AP subjects.
The deadline for registering for AP Testing is October 15th. Payment will be due by November 1st. Any student who misses this deadline and registers after the order is placed will incur a $40 late fee. The cost of exams remains the same as last year, $94.00 per exam. A discounted rate of $15.00 is available to any student who has qualified for free or reduced lunch.
Early Enrollment Program (EEP) through Rhode Island College:
During the week of September 23, 2019 Mrs. Normand met with students who are taking a Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program course during the Fall 2019 semester (American Pop Music, Personal Finance, Global Business, Business Leadership, Portuguese 4 and/or British Lit) at NKHS. The benefits of the program were explained and registration materials were distributed to the students.
The deadline for submitting the registration form is Friday, October 4th. Students must return the required paperwork to their NKHS Early Enrollment Program teacher by this date. Late submissions will not be accepted by Rhode Island College. There is no cost involved with this program.
