About College Board’s AP® School Honor Roll
According to the 2023 College Board, the AP® School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. This is a new program implemented in October of 2023. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Schools on the AP School Honor Roll may also earn the AP Access Award, honoring schools that demonstrate a clear and effective commitment to equitable access to advanced coursework. Schools earn the additional award if the percentage of AP Exam takers who are underrepresented minority and/or low-income students mirrors the school’s overall student demographics. For example, if 50% of a school’s student body is low income, then 50% of the AP Exam takers must also be low income for a school to receive the AP Access Award.
