Twelve students from the John Carroll School Class of 1991 have beenrecognized by the College Board for exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Examinations, given in May 1991.
Only 10 percent of the 359,000 students who took the AP Examinations last May performed well enough to merit such recognition.
The College Board recognizes three levels of achievement -- the AP Scholar with Distinction, the AP Scholar with Honor, and the AP Scholar. At John Carroll, Joseph Finnerty and Anee Goulet qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor award by earning grades of 3.0 or above on four or more AP examinations, with an average exam grade of at least 3.25.
Ten students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more exams with grades 3.0 or higher. These students are Andrew Brisker, Nora Buppert, Ellen Chrismer, Gred Donarum, Clare Gailey, Beth Lizut, Brian Meehan, Peter Tapley, Katerine VanRooy and Danielle Vervier.
The AP Examinations, which students take in May after completing challenging college-level courses, are graded on a 5-point scale, with 5.0 being the highest.
The College Board is a national, nonprofit membership association of more than 2,800 schools and agencies in higher and secondary education committed to promoting educational opportunity and improving academic standards.
