AHA Students Demonstrate College Level Scholarship
The Academy of the Holy Angels is very pleased to report the results of the 2014 Advanced Placement Exams that were given this past spring. The College Board Advanced Placement Program enables students to take college level classes and earn college credit for them when they achieve passing scores. Holy Angels administered 401 AP exams in eighteen different subject areas to its 174 AP students who achieved an overall passing rate of 94%. A Holy Angels record was achieved when 85 of its students were named AP Scholars by the College Board. Of these students, 35 were named AP Scholars with Distinction, having scored an average of 3.5 or higher on at least five exams. An additional 19 students were named AP Scholars with Honor, which requires attaining a 3.25 average on four or more exams; and 31 students were designated as AP Scholars, which requires scoring a 3.0 or higher on at least three Advanced Placement Exams. In addition, Holy Angels had one National AP Scholar this year which is granted to students in the United States who receive an average score of at least “4” on all AP exams taken and scores of “4” or higher on eight or more of these exams.
This success was well deserved, according to AHA Principal Jennifer Moran. “Holy Angels is dedicated to academic excellence and enabling each student to reach the fullness of her potential. We encourage our students to work diligently in all their courses of study and we are delighted with the results of their effort and the love of learning that it produces.” Founded in 1879 and located in Demarest NJ, Holy Angels is a private Catholic college preparatory school dedicated to the education of young women in the tradition of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. It is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, a National Service Learning School, and is accredited by The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Students from all faith traditions are welcomed.
