This academic honors program recognizes academically exceptional students who have scored in the top 10 percent of the state on the PSAT-NMSQT or earned a score of 3 or higher (on a 5 point scale) on two or more Advanced Placement (AP) exams by their junior year. To qualify, they must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

“We are very proud of these students who have earned this recognition for their achievements in the classroom and on the College Board assessments,” said Upper School Director Amanda McIlwain. “Such recognition helps excellent students stand out to colleges during the admissions process.
The program also helps students connect with colleges, universities, and scholarship programs across the country by sharing their achievements through the College Board Student Search Service. As a result, students may receive interest from schools that include special recognition or scholarship opportunities.
