Avon Celebrates Student Who Earned a Rare “Perfect” Score on an Advanced Placement Exam
Avon Old Farms is celebrating alumnus Xander Ratledge '22 for earning a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2022.
Xander was one of only 197 of students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP 2-D Art and Design Exam. Head of School Jim Detora shared the news with our school community during Morning Meeting on Monday, Sept. 19.
“AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among participating students,” said Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program. “We applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential.”
The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college, but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.
Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process. To learn more about AP, please visit exploreap.org.
