2018-19 Program Pricing

These fees apply to schools in the initial Pre-AP cohort; that is, schools that will offer Pre-AP courses in grade nine in school year 2018-19. See how your school can join.

The prices are for these four Pre-AP courses: Pre-AP Algebra 1, Pre-AP Biology, Pre-AP English Language Arts, and Pre-AP World History and Geography. Because we believe that the arts are an integral part of a student’s education, the College Board is pleased to offer ninth-grade Pre-AP Visual and Performing Arts courses at no additional charge to schools that join the initial cohort.

* Assumes grades 9–12. The price is a flat “per-subject” fee that covers all students and all sections of the course, no matter how many sections of the course the school offers. We’ll confirm school size during the application process. If your school size is close to the threshold for the lower pricing segment (within 50 students), we’ll give you the lower price.

** The initial cohort selection process will prioritize schools that choose to offer three or more Pre-AP subjects in ninth grade (not counting Pre-AP Arts). Therefore, for 2018-19, most if not all schools will pay a reduced price. Note that Pre-AP Arts courses don’t count toward the number of subjects when calculating the discount for offering three or four subjects.

*** These reduced prices are for all Pre-AP subjects (except Pre-AP Arts), not just the ELA and math subjects covered by SpringBoard. Because the discount we offer SpringBoard schools on Pre-AP subjects is comparatively large, we don’t give those schools the additional discount for offering three or more subjects.

Calculate Your Cost: Step by Step

If your school doesn’t use SpringBoard:

  1. Determine the size of your school.
  2. Look at the first pricing table above to see the per-subject price for your school size.
  3. Determine how many Pre-AP subjects you’ll offer.
  4. Multiply the number of Pre-AP subjects by your per-subject price. This is your total price before discounts.
  5. Calculate your discounts:
    1. If your school will offer three Pre-AP subjects, multiply the total price by .9 to get your final discounted price.
    2. If your school will offer four Pre-AP subjects, multiply the total price by .8 to get your final discounted price.

Example: Non-SpringBoard School

School size: 700 students

Per-subject price (from table 1): $4,000

Number of Pre-AP subjects offered (not counting Pre-AP Arts): 4

Total price before discounts: $4,000 x 4 = $16,000

Final discounted price: $16,000 x .8 = $12,800 

If your school uses SpringBoard:

  1. Determine the size of your school.
  2. Determine if your school uses only SpringBoard ELA, only SpringBoard Math, or both ELA and Math.
  3. Look at the second pricing table above to see the per-subject price for your school size and SpringBoard use.
  4. Determine how many Pre-AP subjects you’ll offer.
  5. Multiply the number of Pre-AP subjects by your per-subject price. This is your total price.

Example: SpringBoard School

School size: 2,000 students

SpringBoard curricula used: ELA and Math

Per-subject price (from table 2): $2,600

Number of Pre-AP subjects offered (not counting Pre-AP Arts): 4

Total price:  $2,600 x 4 = $10,400
