During Mass and in a special luncheon on September 13, 2018, the Tampa Catholic community honored the academic achievements of our honor roll students from the spring of 2018 and AP scholars from the 2017-2018 academic year.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered to high schoolers and can allow students to earn college credit or to qualify for more advanced college courses. The courses are designed to give the experience of introductory level college classes while students are still in high school.Students can earn college credit if they pass the AP exam at the end of the school year. The AP program is operated by the College Board, the makers of the SAT.
Currently, there are 17 AP courses taught at Tampa Catholic. In the spring of 2018, we administered 476 exams on campus.
On September 13th, we honored the following groups of students for their accomplishments on AP exams:
- Freshmen and Sophomores who successfully passed an AP exam in 2018
- Juniors and Seniors who made a perfect score of a 5 on an exam (or exams) in 2018
- AP Scholars - students who have an average score of 3 on 3 or more exams
- AP Scholars with Honor - students who have an average score of 3.25 on 4 or more exams
- AP Scholars with Distinction - students who have an average score of 3.5 on 5 or more exams
Special acknowledgement was also given to students who made our honor roll in the spring semester of 2018.
- Honor Roll - 86 students had a 3.5 GPA or higher with no grade less than C
- High Honors - 210 students had a 3.75 GPA or higher
- Principal’s Honors - 77 students earned all A’s
Congratulations to the students for these amazing academic achievements! Continue to put in the hard work; your efforts make Tampa Catholic an outstanding school.
