College Board SAT and AP

5 Steps Academy students who opted for US Pathway sit for SAT and Advance Placement (AP) tests.

We don’t accept private candidates for AP this year, we administer the exams only for 5 Steps Academy students. However, we do accept SAT candidates from other schools.

The SAT and five AP tests are a mandatory part of the 5 Steps Academy High School Certificate (US PAthway). and an invaluable addition to the student school transcript for those who aim for the top colleges. Taking AP tests (at least 5) will help the students stand out from the crowd and show that they are willing to challenge themselves with the rigorous AP curriculum.

5 Steps Academy is a College Board-approved K-12 school and test center. Our students can sit for SAT and AP exams right on campus. However, students from other schools can register for the tests as private candidates, subject to seat availability.

SAT exams are administered by 5 Steps Academy twice a year, in August and December. August session allows students to apply to universities by early admission deadlines, giving applicants a specific advantage. On the other hand, those who chose the December session have enough time to apply to universities as SAT results are available only three weeks after the test, which perfectly matches the regular application deadlines of almost all US universities.

Maximize your score with official SAT practice.
