Seventy-three current students and recent graduates of Wyoming Seminary have been named AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level AP (Advanced Placement) Examinations. About 18 percent of the more than two million students who took AP Examinations in May 2014, performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition.
Students take AP examinations in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of year-long courses and exams (or their equivalent semester-long courses and exams).
