Sixteen CHS Graduates Named AP Scholars by College Board

Sixteen students in the Catholic High School Class of 2008 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.

The College Board recognizes levels of achievement based on students’ performances on AP exams.

Six CHS graduates 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 Matthew Berlinger, Aaron Caffarel, James Gilbert, Chad Gremillion, Chris Heroman and James Parks.

Six CHS graduates 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 Chris Demas, Matthew Hiller, Knox Kelly, Gordon Newman, Randy Roth and Jeffrey Roussel.

Four CHS graduates qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations with grades of 3 or higher. AP Scholars are Luis Alexander, James Jolly, James Redwine and Chris Smith.

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