AUBURN – Joseph Bissonnette, a 2004 graduate of St. Dominic Regional High School, has earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of his exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program Exams.

The program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP exams.

About 17 percent of the more than one million high school students in almost 15,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

Students took AP exams in May 2004 after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on student’s performance on AP exams.

Bissonnette qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP examinations, with grades of three or higher.

He is the son of Ronald and Donna Bissonnette of Lewiston.
