Five Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School students have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition for their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP) provides opportunities for motivated and prepared students to experience college-level courses while in high school, thereby fostering critical thinking and college persistence and success.
Leo Petters earned the title of AP Scholar with Distinction by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and a score of 3 or higher on five or more of the exams.
Ann Faulkner and Mary Janet McLaughlin each earned the title of AP Scholar with Honor by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.
Two students earned the title of AP Scholar by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Derek Kelly and Brianna Foley.
Through more than 30 different college-level courses and exams, research has shown that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams typically experience greater academic success in college than students who do not participate in AP courses. Congratulations to our AP Scholars! Go Knights!!!
