Jesuit Dallas Earns National Recognition from the College Board

Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas was recently selected to the College Board’s AP School Honor Roll in recognition of outstanding commitment and student performance in the AP Scholar program. In addition, Jesuit Dallas was presented with the AP Access Award, which honors schools that encourage low-income and underrepresented minority students to take AP courses.

Last year, a record 849 AP tests were administered at Jesuit Dallas and over 79% of students taking an AP exam earned passing scores, representing a 30% increase over the state and national average. One hundred and forty-three Jesuit students earned prominence from the College Board as AP Scholars for authoring an exemplary performance on at least three AP exams during the 2022-23 school year.

One hundred and two students received recognition as an AP Scholar or AP Scholar with Honors, while 41 earned the prestigious AP Scholar with Distinction title, which is awarded to students who average a minimum of 3.5 on all AP exams and a score of 3 or more on at least 5 exams. Recognition through the AP Scholar program signals outstanding college readiness and scores often translate into college credit and/or placement in undergraduate coursework progressions.

In a letter to the School penned by College Board Senior Vice President Trevor Packer, “The AP School Honor Roll is proud to recognize Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas for developing an AP program that creates a college-going culture and gives students opportunities to earn college credit and to maximize their college outcomes. We know it takes a considerable schoolwide effort to make AP access a priority. I am inspired by your commitment and grateful for the chance to honor your success.”
