Fremont Christian High School students earn AP scholarships
by Laura Johnson
Six students at Fremont Christian High School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.
The College Board's Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than one million high school students in more than 15,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.
Students took AP Exams in May 2005 after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on student's performance on AP exams.
At Fremont Christian High School, two students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Natasha Dagys (Class of '06) and Shannon Walter ('05).
Four students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations, with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Amber Edlin ('05), Viet Ho ('06), Bethany Jelincic ('05) and Eryn Murphy ('06).
Students of the Class of 2006 have at least one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn another AP Scholar Award.
