Pinecrest Academy Earns AP® School Honor Roll Awards
Pinecrest Academy has been named to the Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) School Honor Roll, earning Platinum distinction. The AP® School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. The AP® School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Pinecrest had 87% of seniors who took at least one AP exam during high school, 78% of seniors scoring a three or higher on at least one AP exam, and 74% of seniors who took five or more AP exams! This data is based on 22 AP courses that were offered during the 2022-2023 school year. Twenty-one sections were taught by 12 high school teachers at Pinecrest.
“AP represents an opportunity for students to stand out to colleges, earn college credit and placement, and potentially boost their grade point averages,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP program. “The schools have shown that they can expand access to these college-level courses and still drive high performance – they represent the best of our AP program.”
Pinecrest Academy was also awarded the AP Access Award. Schools on the AP® School Honor Roll may also earn this award, which honors schools that demonstrate a clear and effective commitment to equitable access to advanced coursework.
