CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. (August 28, 2019) – The College Board has distributed AP Scholar Awards to 95 Marian Catholic students. This comes after students were notified of their scores in July.

Among those 95 were two Lansing residents—Christina Javorka and Ethan Roberts—whose scores were high enough to earn Distinction and National AP Scholar status.

According to the College Board website, “The AP Scholar Awards recognize high school students who have demonstrated exemplary college-level achievement on AP Exams. A roster of award recipients is provided online to their secondary schools and districts. Additionally, students are able to print a copy of their award certificate(s) online, and the awards are reflected on all score reports sent to colleges after awards are conferred.”

There are two steps in calculating the awards to students. The first step is the student’s average AP score is determined based on all exams taken this year and in previous years. Second, the student’s exam scores are checked to see which ones count toward the various AP Scholar Awards. A student must meet all criteria to be eligible.

Five Marian Catholic students received the AP Capstone Diploma which is granted to students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams of their choosing. Marian Catholic is one of 63 high schools in Illinois that are approved to participate in AP Capstone.
