Twenty-four students from Canon-McMillan High School earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams.
About 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million students worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
