Awards and Distinctions

Advanced PlacementĀ® Scholars

The College BoardĀ® designates students as Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars based on the number of AP Exams they take and how they perform on those exams. In 2017, BASIS Curriculum students were more than two times as likely to earn AP Scholar Awards than other students participating in AP testing, and thirteen times more likely to be designated as National AP Scholars, the highest award level.
