Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Celebrates 10 AP Scholars for the 2018-19 School Year

Montgomery Catholic is proud to announce that ten students have been identified as AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their performance on the Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams taken in May of 2019. Students enrolled in AP courses complete college-level work and take an exam at the end of the school year. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams, based on scores ranging from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest).
“This distinction reflects a high degree of hard work and dedication, both from the students and from their teachers,” said Montgomery Catholic high school principal Justin Castanza. “We are so proud of their achievements.”
Six students were named as AP Scholars for receiving a score of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams: Austin Collett ‘19, Jonah Gier ‘19, Grace Leslie ‘19, Maddie Losik ‘19, Kathleen Madden ‘19, and Chloe Smith ’19.
Two students were given the AP Scholar with Honor Award for 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: Annie Bach ’19 and Sofie lzer ’20.
Two students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award for receiving an average score of 3.5 or higher on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams: Reagan Herbek ’19 and Clare Wilson ’20.
Of these students, Regan Herbek and Austin Collett were the valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively, of the graduating class of 2019. Sofie Izer has been named as a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist and Clare Wilson has been named as a National Merit Commended Scholar.

Over the past two years, more than half of all Montgomery Catholic students who have taken AP Exams have earned a score of 3 or better with about half of those students earning a 4 or higher. Students have an opportunity to earn college credit depending on how well they score on AP Exams. Montgomery Catholic offers a variety of AP courses in several different disciplines.
