Eight high schools within St. Vrain Valley Schools have been honored with the distinguished College Board AP School Honor Roll designation, acknowledging outstanding student performance on college-level Advanced Placement exams.
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. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
“This recognition emphasizes our district-wide commitment to the ‘AP for All’ initiative,” said Chris Gardner, AP Coordinator for St. Vrain Valley Schools. “In St. Vrain, we firmly believe that every student benefits from the rigor and opportunities offered by the Advanced Placement curriculum.”
St. Vrain Valley Schools offers students a robust and comprehensive selection of 36 Advanced Placement courses across its high schools, including at New Meridian High School, St. Vrain Virtual High School and LaunchEd Virtual Academy. In 2023, the district saw 2,808 students take 4,784 AP exams. Additionally, 704 students earned the AP Scholar recognition and 63 students earned the prestigious AP Capstone diploma.
