Catholic Central Earns Place On AP School Honor Roll 2022-2023

Detroit Catholic Central High School earned a spot on the AP® School Honor Roll for the 2022 – 2023 school year.  

The AP® School Honor Roll program recognizes a school’s effort to prepare students for college culture by providing opportunities to earn college credit and maximize their college readiness.  

Detroit Catholic Central High School earned Silver recognition for the 2022 - 2023 school year. To meet the qualification for AP School Honor Roll, schools must meet the following criteria: 

  • College Culture: 40% or more of the graduating class took at least one AP high school exam. CC scored a 55% in this area, earning Silver status.  

  • College Credit: 25% or more of the graduating class scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP high school exam.CC scored 35%, earning Gold status in this area.  

  • College Optimization: 2 percent or more of the graduating class took 5 or more AP high school exams. At least one exam was taken in 9th or 10th grade, indicating that students spread their AP classes out throughout their four years. CC earned Platinum status in this area with a score of 16 percent.  

According to research, students who participate in AP classes are more likely to go to college and graduate on time. Additionally, the study found that AP students who earned a score of 1 or 2 on their AP exams in high school had better academic performances in college than students who did not take AP courses.  

Students still benefit from taking AP courses in high school even if they don’t receive college credit for it by showing willingness to work hard academically and adopting skills needed to excel in future careers. AP classes also raise a student’s GPA.  

Earning an AP® School Honor Roll certification shows significant schoolwide work from dedicated teachers, administrators, counselors, students, and staff.
