ELIZABETH—Emilie Burke, a senior at Benedictine Academy in Elizabeth, has earned the prestigious distinction of being named an AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of her achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Program Exams.
Administrators at the all-female Catholic college prep high school located in Elizabeth were notified of Burke’s accomplishment this month. The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both, for successful performance on the AP Exams.
Burke is among millions of high school students worldwide who took AP Exams and performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar. Students took the AP Exams in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. A Colonia resident, Burke qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three AP exams with grades of 3 or higher (on a 5-point scale).
