FRYEBURG, Maine — Fryeburg Academy is pleased to announce that the College Board has conferred AP Scholar Awards upon 32 Fryeburg Academy students this year, recognizing college-level achievement on AP examinations for 22 students designated as AP Scholars, four further as AP Scholars with Honor, and six as AP Scholars with Distinction.
Success on an AP Exam is defined as an exam score of 3, 4, or 5, representing the score point that research finds predictive of college success, in addition to successful attainment of the knowledge and skills entailed in the subject area studied. Most colleges and universities grant accelerated study options, credit, or both to enrolling students who have achieved scores in this range while in high school.
"These students have embraced the rigors of Advanced Placement coursework and met the challenges of the courses' culminating examinations. We are very proud of their hard work and accomplishment," said Erin Mayo, head of school.
Fryeburg Academy offers 13 AP courses in mathematics, science, humanities, and the arts, in addition to 20 honors and five college-level courses.
