Student Scholars & Recognition
AP® SCHOLAR AWARDS
For Immediate Release
Date: October 15, 2021
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 2021, 776 students completed AP exams. Collectively, students took 1,657 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.

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 2021 AP Scholar award winners at the 12th Annual Advanced Academic Banquet on January 9, 2022.
