Scecina began its Advanced Placement program in the early 2000s with AP Calculus and AP Literature. Today we offer 18 AP classes on a regular basis. Advanced Placement classes are courses set up by The College Board which reward the students with college credit for the class if the student earns a score of 3 or higher on the subject test. The AP classes are offered at no extra charge at Scecina, but there may be a charge to take the AP exam, depending on the class.
This is one of best opportunities Scecina offers for college-bound students.
Results from last school year's AP tests recently have been reported, and our students did quite well, with 18 receiving the award of AP Scholar or higher. They are:
AP Scholar (scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams): Jonathan Card '17, Haley Drewes '16, Christopher Duncan '17, Lauren Gray '17, Madeline Gray '16,Jacqueline Kennedy '17, Mary O'Connor '17, Alexander Vazquez Quinn '16 and Grace Wright '17.
AP Scholar with Honor (average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams): Andrew Clegg '17, Michaela Heil '16, Wesley Moss '16 and Jenna Nosek '16
AP Scholar with Distinction (average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams): Kiley Harpold '16, Eamon Hegarty '16, Mitchell Kozenski '16, Corinne Maue '16, Alexandra Rebein '16.
We congratulate these students and all of our students who worked hard and took and passed these challenging classes. Many of our students enter college with more than 20 college credits, including credit from AP, dual-credit and biomedical science (Project Lead The Way) classes. Many of our students also test out of several college language classes.
This is just one way a Scecina education pays off for our students and their families.
