Episcopal Academy announces 116 AP Scholars

Posted August 20, 2013


One hundred sixteen students at The Episcopal Academy have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advance Placement Program® (AP®) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.
