Student Scholars & Recognition
AP® SCHOLAR AWARDS
Date: October 15, 2023
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both from successful performance on the AP Exams.
In May 2023, 885 students completed AP exams. Collectively, students took 1,837 exams representing tests from the Arts, English, History and Social Sciences, Math and Computer Science, the Sciences, World Languages and Cultures, and AP Capstone. Lovejoy High School students continue to demonstrate excellent achievement, both in classroom performance, and through the College Board’s external validation.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams. Three hundred fifteen students at Lovejoy High School have earned AP Scholar Awards and recognitions of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

7 students qualified for the AP Capstone Diploma by completing both AP Seminar and Research and earning a 3 or higher. Diploma students also earn a 3 or higher on four additional AP courses of their choosing.

5 students earned the AP Seminar and Research Certificate by earning a score of 3 or higher in both courses. They are Sophie Arriaga, Mark Bowling, Elizabeth Esposito, Devon Karras, and Marco Laos.
Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,800 colleges and universities annually receive AP scores. Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
Lovejoy ISD will honor each of the 2023 AP Scholar award winners at a recognition ceremony in early 2024.
