Nineteen CHS Students Named AP Scholars by College Board

Nineteen students at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.

Students took AP Exams in May 2005, and College Board recognizes levels of achievement based on a student’s performances on AP exams.
Nine CHS students qualified for AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Benjamin Bradley, Joey Chatelain, Patrick Coco, Remy Cosse, Eric Couper, Sean Gahagan, Matthew Gidden, Johnny Love and Jeremy Meiske.

Four CHS students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of least 3.25 on all AP Exams and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students include Joseph Calvasina, Alex Demas, Wayne Dugas and Jason Gremillion.

Six CHS students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations with grades of 3 or higher. AP Scholars are Stephen Brouillette, Matthew Caillet, Tyler Harper, Josef Hoffmann, James Johnson and Douglas Pittman.

Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement or both, based on successful performances on the AP Exams.
