Mount Saint Mary Academy is pleased to congratulate the 61 students recognized by the College Board as AP Scholars. The 2022 AP Exam results allowed 25 students to be named as AP Scholars with Distinction, 15 students were named as AP Scholars with Honors and 21 students were named as AP Scholars. 

The College Board recognizes AP Scholars with Distinction as those students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more exams. Students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more exams are recognized as AP Scholars with Honors. AP Scholars are those students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.

Elizabeth Roper, Director of College Counseling and AP Coordinator, noted that Mount Saint Mary Academy provides the opportunity for students in 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to take an AP course, and traditionally, 90% of our students have the experience of an AP course by the time they graduate. Students are also offered online AP courses via One Schoolhouse.

“The continued record of success our students have on the exam is a reflection of their dedication as well as the quality teaching of our faculty,” she said.

“AP courses and rigor allow students to be well-prepared for college level academic work. While Admission professionals may favorably review a student’s transcript with AP courses, most valuable is that students are entering college with a deeper understanding of the subject material and are more confident and can actively further engage in their learning,” stated Ms. Roper.

“AP courses and exam scores may allow a student to gain college credit (scores of 3 or higher may be eligible for college credit, depending on the college/university),” she said. “AP courses and exam scores may also provide a student to have advanced standing at their college and offer more flexibility in her course scheduling to pursue a double major, a minor, study abroad opportunities and internships. In addition, academically motivated young women continuing their studies on to a masters or professional level may have an opportunity to begin their studies earlier than their peers. And finally, as Mount students may seek global educational opportunities, AP courses and exam scores can be instrumental in international university admission.”
