Students earned this distinction based on their remarkable academic achievements and outstanding performance on the PSAT and/or AP exams.

These academic honors can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. 

“We’re thrilled to celebrate our students and recognize them for the great work they’ve been doing," said Mr. Brad Chamberlain, St. Mary's Ryken Dean of Academics. "We are proud of their strong academic performance in the classroom and on College Board assessments like the PSAT and AP exams."

Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.

Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
