Two students at Dayton High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams for the 2020-2021 school year, an amazing accomplishment due to the recent pandemic.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program ® (AP ®) provides willing 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.
At Dayton High School, one student, for the second year, qualified for the AP Scholar Award byreceiving a score of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams:
Joshua Sagun, son of Mr. & Mrs. Joselito Sagun, Class of 2021
Additionally, one student qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by receiving a score of three or higher on four or more AP Exams and receiving an average score of at least 3.25 on all exams taken. This is the second year that this student has received an award:
Jonathan Gerardo, son of Mr. & Mrs. Joel Gerardo, Class of 2021
Through 38 different college-level courses and exams, AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a three or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with five being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.

Each year, the College Board helps more than seven million tudents prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and success, including the SAT ® and the Advanced Placement Program.
