The AP Program recognizes high school students who have demonstrated outstanding college-level achievement through AP courses and exams with the AP Scholar Awards. Although there is no monetary award, each award-winning student receives a certificate, and the award is acknowledged on any AP score report that is sent to colleges after the award has been conferred.
This continues Cornerstone Prep’s strong tradition of academic excellence within the AP program. Cornerstone first began offering AP courses officially to students in 2011, our seventh year of existence. That year, 100% of our students scored a 3 or higher, compared to the Georgia state average of 55% and the national average of 60%.
In 2016, 88% of our students received a score of 3 or higher, compared to the Georgia state average of 58% and the national average of 60%. Please see the chart for a year by year comparison.
Currently, Cornerstone Prep offers three AP courses onsite: AP World History, AP US History, and AP Literature. Students can also take various AP classes via Cornerstone Virtual Academy. All students must be pre-approved before they can take an AP class.
Once again this year, Cornerstone Prep was also proud to have one of our AP teachers be chosen as an AP Reader: Angela Heitz. Each June, AP teachers and college faculty members from around the world gather in the United States to evaluate and score the free-response sections of the AP Exams.
AP Readers are high school and college educators who represent many of the world’s leading academic institutions. The AP Reading is a unique forum in which an academic dialogue between educators is both fostered and encouraged.
