AP Scholar Awards

The AP Program offers several AP Scholar Awards to recognize high school students who have demonstrated college-level achievement through AP courses and exams. Although there is no monetary award, in addition to receiving an award certificate, this achievement is acknowledged on any AP score report that is sent to colleges the following fall.

AP Scholar Award Breakfast
Hylton High School typically honors our AP Scholar Award recipients with a breakfast and award ceremony during the month of December.  In addition to celebrating our current Hylton AP Scholars, we invite our recent graduates who earned AP Scholar awards during exam administration in their senior year back to campus to celebrate the achievements of all our students.  Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog!

The 2021 AP Scholar Award Breakfast will be held on Tuesday, December 14, 2021.  More details to follow.
