“The news of Frank's perfect score fills us with great pride,” says Mrs. Tracy. “It is a wonderful example of using one's God-given talents to their fullest potential and certainly reflects the academic focus and rigor that underscores a Nazareth Academy education. We congratulate Frank, his parents and teachers on this outstanding accomplishment.”
AP Exams are based on a 5-point scale, where 5 is equivalent to a grade of A in the corresponding college course. Frank received this top score of 5. Ms. Biga adds, “Frank is an outstanding math student. I was excited to hear that he achieved a perfect score.”
Nazareth Academy offers AP coursework across all academic disciplines. In addition to Frank’s perfect score, fifteen Nazareth students earned Advanced Placement Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams in 2015.
“AP courses and exams are college-level and require hard work and focus on the part of students and their teachers,” says Trevor Packer, senior vice president of AP and instruction at the College Board. “We congratulate the students and community members who make challenging coursework and focused practice a priority and who motivate and encourage all students to capture their academic potential.”
