AP Scholars Recognized
Students from Central Valley and University High schools have earned the designation of "AP Scholar" by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Exams taken in May 2008.
The College Board's Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the 1.6 million high school students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
