BASIS Charter School Students are recognized for academic accomplishments.

Advanced Placement® Scholars

The College Board® designates students as Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars based on the number of AP Exams they take and their average score. These high school students have demonstrated college-level achievement on AP Exams and have the privilege of citing their AP Scholar Awards on college applications and job résumés. Not only do these awards distinguish AP Scholars from their peers, but research also shows that students who receive a score of 3 or higher on AP Exams typically experience greater academic success in college.

AP Scholars

  • AP Scholar: Granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams
  • AP Scholar with Honor: Granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams
  • AP Scholar with Distinction: Granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams
  • National AP Scholar: 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
