The College Board National Recognition Programs provide underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded based on National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural and Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.
“We’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition and are proud of their achievements in both the classroom and on the College Board assessments,” said Dr. John Sparlin, Superintendent of Schools. “Programs like these help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”
These recognitions and achievements were earned based on these students’ outstanding performance of having a GPA of 3.5 or higher and having excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams. Students will receive their awards in time to be included on their college and scholarship applications and colleges know that students who have earned this recognition are some of the most talented across the country.
