College board: CHSD117
College Board announced that Lakes Community High School and Antioch Community High School have been named to the Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) School Honor Roll this year, earning the “Silver” and “Bronze” distinction, respectively. The AP® School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. “AP represents an opportunity for students to stand out to colleges, earn college credit and placement, and potentially boost their grade point averages,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP® program. “The schools have shown that they can expand access to these college-level courses and still drive high performance – they represent the best of our AP program.”
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.
We know it takes a significant school wide effort—dedication from teachers, counselors, administrators, students, and parents—to make AP® access a priority. We join you in celebrating this inspiring achievement for our community.
