IC Catholic Prep Named to Advanced Placement School Honor Roll
Congratulations to IC Catholic Prep which was named to the 2023 AP School Honor Roll! The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools who AP program are delivering results and broadening access for students.
Schools can earn the Honor Roll recognition annually based on their ability to increase their school’s college-going culture, to provide opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximize college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Of the 15,150 eligible schools, only 4,570 (30%) earned a place on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll
Only 39% of schools on the honor roll earned the AP Access Award
“I am very excited to share IC Catholic Prep has been awarded the 2023 Silver honor roll with Access award from College Board. These distinctions speak to our faculty’s commitment to providing a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum that allows students to begin building a competitive college resume as early as their sophomore year,” states Danielle Wagner, M.A., Principal.
College Board’s Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) enables students to pursue college-level studies—with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both—while still in high school. Through AP courses in 38 subjects, each culminating in a challenging exam, students learn to think critically, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue—skills that prepare them for college and beyond. Taking AP courses demonstrates to college admissions officers that students have sought the most challenging curriculum available to them, and research indicates that students who score a 3 or higher on an AP Exam typically experience greater academic success in college and are more likely to earn a college degree than non-AP students.
