Attention students in the graduating classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020: The Howard Scholars Certificate Program is designed to recognize students who challenge themselves by taking a rigorous and diverse AP course load. So if plan to take 4 or 5 AP classes before you graduate, why not consider stretching yourself to take at least SIX. By applying to participate in this program you are making a pledge to yourself to complete the program requirements by the year of your graduation and we promise to recognize you for your accomplishments.
Program requirements include taking one AP course and its exam in Math, Science, English and Social Studies, plus two additional AP courses and their exams of the student’s choosing. Students must also maintain at least a C average in all of their classes.
Howard Scholars applications are online (so print them at home or in the media center before or after school or during your lunch shift) and a limited supply will be available Student Services for students in the graduating classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020. The application deadline is Monday, January 30, 2017. Any further questions about the program should be directed to Mrs. Mager at Carolyn_Mager@hcpss.org.
