Father Ryan High School has been named to the Advanced Placement (AP) School Honor Roll, a new program launched in October 2023. Of the 15,150 eligible public, private, and charter schools in the United States and Canada, only 4,570 earned recognition on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll.
“We are proud of our students’ commitment to upholding Father Ryan’s tradition of academic excellence with the support of our dedicated and talented teachers,” said Father Ryan Academic Dean Jennifer Anton. “Our adaptive and rigorous learning model is designed to challenge and develop each student as they strive for success and growth, and we are blessed to see our students continue to reach their full academic potential.”
The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. To be recognized, 40 percent of the school’s graduating class took at least one AP exam during high school, 25 percent of the graduating class scored a three or higher on at least 1 AP exam during high school, and two percent of the graduating class took five or more AP exams during high school, with at least one of those exams taken in ninth or tenth grade.
The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Father Ryan is proud to receive the 2023 Silver distinction.
