AP Scholar Awards Earned by 157 Baylor Students

Congratulations to the 157 Baylor students and recent graduates who earned Advanced Placement Scholar Awards for 2021 in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams taken in May. Traditionally, about 20 percent of approximately two million students worldwide who take AP Exams perform at a sufficiently high level to earn an AP Scholar Award.
