These outstanding students earned this recognition because of their academic achievements and their outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and/or AP Exams.

These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.

These 34 AHS students achieved these accomplishments during an incredibly demanding part of their high school careers. They are worthy of our respect and appreciation. 

Congratulations, students! You make us all proud.
