Champion High School Named to National AP School Honor Roll
November 13, 2023- The Boerne Independent School District announced that Champion High School was named a National AP School Honor Roll Silver Recipient. Only 30% of eligible high schools in the United States are recognized with this honor. In addition, Champion was one of just 1,770 U.S schools that received the AP Access Award, demonstrating a clear and effective commitment to equitable access to advanced coursework.
For a school to be recognized on the AP School Honor Roll, it must be located within the United States and meet each of the following criteria:
• 40% or more of the graduating cohort took at least 1 AP Exam during high school.
• 25% or more of the graduating cohort scored a 3 or higher on at least 1 AP Exam
during high school.
• 2% or more of the graduating cohort took 5 or more AP Exams during high school.
• Have full-time grade-12 enrollment.
Boerne ISD Superintendent Dr. Thomas Price said, “This recognition further proves that Champion is one of the top performing high schools not only in our region, but in the U.S. Our students work extremely hard to gain AP credits, and this honor is a testament to our students and their wonderful teachers.”
The recipients represent a broad range of high schools from across the United States (including U.S. territories) and Canada. They include private, public, and charter schools; large and small student bodies; rural and urban populations; and specialized high schools, along with generalized programs.
Research shows students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. The students who enter four-year colleges with credit from AP accelerate their path to graduation and build confidence for college success. Even for those who don’t earn college credit, AP coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.
