Twelve CHS Students Named AP Scholars by College Board

Twelve 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 2006, and College Board recognizes levels of achievement based on a student’s performances on AP exams.
Two 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 John Bensabat and Samuel Harbourt.

Seven 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 Nicholas Boudreau, Christopher Fronczek, Travis Meyer, Scott Sulik, Vincent Tumminello, Andrew Walker and Gary Walker.

Three CHS students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations with grades of 3 or higher. AP Scholars are James Bouanchaud, Brett Burke and Justin Mannino.
Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement or both, based on successful performances on the AP Exams.
