Sixteen students at Mission Collegiate High School (MCHS) have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP (Advanced Placement) exams.

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. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement, based on students’ performance on AP exams.

One student qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award. This is earned by receiving an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of the exams. The AP Scholar with Honor Award was earned by senior Chelsie Barrientos.
