Seven Hills Named to AP School Honor Roll with Highest Distinction

The Seven Hills School has been named to the Advanced Placement School Honor Roll, earning a Platinum distinction.

The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP Programs are delivering results for students while broadening their access to AP courses by increasing a college-going culture and the opportunities to earn college credit and maximizing college readiness. Only 6% of the eligible schools received the Platinum distinction.

“Congratulations to the hard-working, high-achieving Class of 2023 for earning Seven Hills the highest ranking in this brand-new College Board recognition program,” Director of College Counseling Susan Marrs said.

The Seven Hills Upper School exceeded the requirements for Platinum distinction, which requires 80% of the Class of 2023 to take at least one AP course, with 50% receiving a college credit earning score of 3 or higher, and 15% of the class having taken five AP courses over their time at the school with at least one being in ninth or 10th grade.

For the Seven Hills Class of 2023, 80% took at least one of the 17 AP courses offered by the Seven Hills Upper School. Of those, 79% percent earned a 3 or higher, securing college credit, and 29% took five or more AP courses while at the Upper School.

“AP represents an opportunity for students to stand out to colleges, earn college credit and placement, and potentially boost their grade point averages,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP program.  “The schools have shown that they can expand access to these college-level courses and still drive high performance – they represent the best of our AP program.”
