LIVERMORE FALLS – Three student at Livermore Falls High School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their 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 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 recognition of AP Scholar.

At Livermore Falls High School three students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP examinations, with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are: James Foster, son of Cinda Foster; Andre Mercier, son of Duane and Anita Mercier; and Thomas Richard, son of John and Lisa Richard.

Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement or both based on successful performance on the AP exams. More than 1,400 institutions award a full year’s credit to students presenting a sufficient number of qualifying grades.
