VCS Racks Up Record-Breaking AP Test Scores
The pandemic may have turned the spring upside down, but that didn’t stop Village Christian students and teachers from achieving record-breaking results on the AP tests.
VCS students earned a school-record 78.6-percent total passing rate across 17 subjects and 364 total tests, all of which were administered during online learning.
It’s a remarkable accomplishment in a year filled with so many obstacles.
“This year, The College Board had already significantly changed many aspects of their AP program, and when the ‘Safer at Home’ orders came, they changed even more of their testing protocols,” said Ray Endacott, Associate Head of School for Academic Life. “Our students did an amazing job adapting to all the changes they had to face, including testing from home. I’m so proud of the hard work of our students this year and all the support of their teachers gave them to reach these amazing milestones.”
Teachers found effective and innovative ways to prepare students during online learning, and in the end, scores exceeded national averages in 12 subjects, with AP Chinese and Culture and AP Studio Art each earning 100-percent passing rates.
School records were also set in AP Biology (95.65 percent), AP World History (93.3 percent), and AP Physics (57 percent).
Passing rates exceeded 80 percent in AP Biology, AP Computer Science A, AP Computer Science Principles, AP English Literature, AP US History, and AP World History.
“We are so proud of our incredible students for their resilience and dedication,” said Head of School Tom Konjoyan. “We are also so thankful for our committed faculty. No matter the circumstance, our teachers remained focused on educating our students and preparing them for the next level.”
