Awards and Distinctions

BASIS Curriculum Students are recognized for academic accomplishments.

Advanced Placement® Scholars

The College Board® designates students as Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars based on the number of AP Exams they take and how they perform on those exams. BASIS Curriculum students earn AP Scholar Awards at a much higher rate than other students participating in AP testing, especially at the highest award levels of AP Scholar with Distinction and National AP Scholar.

  • AP Scholar with Distinction: Granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on
    all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams
