Nine students from Beaufort Academy earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.
Students Ashton Bishop, Robert (Beau) Cooper, Matthew Coyle, Emma Dillinger, Alyssa Lewis, Emilie Claire Nason, Rachel Reineri, Chase Vaigneur, and Jack Carter Worrell qualified for the AP Scholar by completing three or more AP Examinations, with grades of 3 or higher.
Six of the students graduated with the class of 2021, while Bishop, Cooper, and Worrell are members of the class of 2022.
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.
The above listed students joined 32,000 other students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs. These National Recognition Programs connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the college admissions process.
Students took AP Exams in May 2021 after completing the challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP exams.
Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award college credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful performance on the AP exams.
