Ansh Patel, Virginia Pingree and Katherine Taylor were honored as AP Scholars with Honor.
Elizabeth Foster, Kate Luckey and Ben Steen were honored as AP Scholars with Distinction.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performances on the AP exams.
Students took AP Exams in May 2022 after completing the challenging college-level courses at their high schools. Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award college credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful performance on the AP exams.
The students honored at BA joined 32,000 other students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs.
