AP School Honor Roll & What Sets Us Apart

Padua Academy has achieved Gold status on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll! We are incredibly proud to be recognized nationally for our outstanding Advanced Placement programs.

The AP School Honor Roll highlights institutions that deliver impressive results for their students and actively broaden access to AP courses, welcoming more students into AP courses and supporting them on the path to college success. 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.
Our inclusion on the AP School Honor Roll is a testament to the teamwork of our devoted educators, counselors, administrators, students, and parents. Together, we've cultivated an environment of academic excellence, encouraging students to strive for their best.

Did you know... research shows that students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. The students who enter four-year colleges with credit from AP accelerate their path to graduation and build confidence for college success. And even for those who don’t earn college credit, AP coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.


We also want to share a glimpse into what makes our AP programs truly exceptional and sets us apart:

📘 Students took AP Exams Across 23 Subject Areas in 2023 📚 21 Dedicated Teachers for AP courses 2023-24 ✅ 86% Pass Rate Across 21 Subject Areas 🌟 One-quarter of Padua's AP Students Achieved a top score of 5 on Their Exams

But here's the real highlight - our remarkable students and their outstanding performance in math. 💯 100% Pass Rate Across All AP Math Exams (AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and AP Statistics), including a top score of 5 for every student who took the AP Calculus BC exam. 🎓 Such incredible achievements have inspired us to introduce AP Precalculus starting the 2023-2024 school year, raising the bar even higher!

What sets Padua Academy apart? We are the only diocesan high school offering the AP Capstone program, empowering our students with a holistic and enriching learning experience.

We're immensely proud of our scholars! 🎉 6 students earned AP Capstone Diplomas, 1 student received an AP Seminar and Research Certificate, 11 students achieved AP Scholars with Distinction, 13 students earned AP Scholars with Honors, and 18 students became AP Scholars.
