Congratulations to Catholic High School for being named to the 2023 AP School Honor Roll at the Silver level! The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools who AP program are delivering results and broadening access for students.
Schools can earn the Honor Roll recognition annually based on their ability to increase their school’s college-going culture, to provide opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Catholic High School had 54% of seniors in the class of 2023 who took at least one AP exam during high school, 40% of seniors in the class of 2023 scoring a three or higher on at least one AP exam, and 19% of seniors in the class of 2023 who took five or more AP exams!
AP by the numbers at CHS:
· 22 AP Courses Offered; 41 sections
· 439 Students enrolled in AP courses
· 22 AP Teachers
· Over 3000 hours of college credit earned in 2022
College Board’s Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) enables students to pursue college-level studies—with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both—while still in high school. Through AP courses in 38 subjects, each culminating in a challenging exam, students learn to think critically, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue—skills that prepare them for college and beyond. Taking AP courses demonstrates to college admissions officers that students have sought the most challenging curriculum available to them, and research indicates that students who score a 3 or higher on an AP Exam typically experience greater academic success in college and are more likely to earn a college degree than non-AP students.
