At St. Agnes Academy, students took Advanced Placement (AP) exams in May 2015, earning college credit before they graduated high school. The AP Program measures demonstrated achievement in college-level subject matter for 11th and 12th grade students. Exams are offered in English Language, English Literature, U.S. Government, U.S. History, World History, Calculus (2), Biology, Chemistry, and Spanish Language.
“St. Agnes Academy gave a record number of Advanced Placement tests this past spring and once again, our students' scores were exceptional. The pass rate for the Advanced Placement tests were 95% for the second year in a row” said Director of Guidance Debbie Skelly. This year, we had two seniors named as National AP Scholars – Sophia Huang and Valedictorian Carla Vilardo. We are also pleased to announce an AP International Diploma recipient, Madelyn Way.
