District 6 students honored as AP Scholars

This year, 97 Greeley-Evans School District 6 students have earned the prestigious AP Scholars award for their outstanding performance on 2021 Advanced Placement tests, with two students earning the AP Capstone Diploma.


The College Board’s Advanced Placement program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses and exams while in high school. District 6 offers more than 20 Advanced Placement courses to high school students. Students who score well on AP exams are eligible to receive college credit, advanced placement in college, or both at more than 3,200 colleges and universities across the United States. 


Annually, the College Board recognizes those students who have taken multiple AP exams and scored well on them:


  • AP Scholar: Students who earned scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams.

Greeley Central High School led among District 6 high schools with 30 AP scholars this year.

The College Board’s AP exams are developed by a national committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that the exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation's leading liberal arts and research institutions
