Forty-nine PSJA ISD high school students recognized as 2022 National AP Scholars

PHARR – Making district history, forty-nine Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD (PSJA ISD) students were recognized for being National AP Scholars during a regularly held board meeting held recently.

Each fall, the AP Scholars Program recognizes high school students who have demonstrated exemplary college-level achievement through their performance on multiple AP exams by earning a score of 3 or more. In addition, the designation of AP Scholar with Honors is granted to high school students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher in four or more of these exams. 

PSJA ISD had 49 students designated as a National AP Scholar or AP Scholar with Honors for the 2021-2022 school year. Additionally, students from PSJA T. Jefferson T-STEM Early College High School submitted their AP Capstone project with the potential to earn an additional distinction. Students are granted this distinction by earning scores of 3 or higher in both AP Seminar and AP Research.  

Congratulations to all AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Honors, and AP Seminar and Research Certificate recipients.
