Three Haverford School students from the Class of 2013 have earned AP Scholar Awards by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Examinations.
About 20 percent of the more than 2.1 million students who took AP Examinations performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition, according to the Haverford School.
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 yearlong courses and exams (or their equivalent semester-long courses and exams), according to the Haverford School.
Grayson Sessa (University of Pennsylvania) 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.
Kiran Jagtiani (Johns Hopkins University) and Erich Prince (Duke University) qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations with grades of 3 or higher.
