Sixty-five current students and recent graduates of Wyoming Seminary have been named AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level AP (Advanced Placement) Examinations.
About 18 percent of the more than two million students who took AP Examinations in May, 2013, performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition.
Students take AP examinations in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of year-long courses and exams (or their equivalent semester-long courses and exams).
Twenty-seven Sem students qualified for the AP Scholar With Distinction award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. Dakota Pace of Lake Ariel, a 2013 Sem graduate, qualified for this award.
Seventeen students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on AP exams taken and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of those exams. Katherine Maximov of Lake Ariel, a 2013 graduate, qualified for this award.
