Three Camden Fairview High School Students Earn National Academic Honors

Every fall, the Advanced Placement (AP) AP Scholars Program recognizes high school students across the nation who have demonstrated outstanding college-level achievement through their performance on multiple AP Exams. This year, Camden Fairview High School seniors Dorian Rice and Abby Word and 2023 graduate Patrick Davidson were recognized as AP Scholars.

Abby and Patrick earned the designation of AP Scholars, which is granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams. Dorian earned recognition as an AP Scholar with Distinction, which is granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.

Dorian also earned academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Program. The National Recognition Program recognizes underrepresented students’ academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through the College Board’s Student Search Service.

Dorian earned the National African American Recognition Award (NAARA) recognition by excelling in the classroom and on her PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or 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 are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.

CFHS Principal Cara Bowie said, “Congratulations to Dorian, Abby, and Patrick! We are proud of your accomplishments and appreciate your dedication to academic excellence.”
