Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program, sponsored by the College Board, is the gold standard of attaining college credits on the high school level. The AP curriculum is nationally acclaimed and widely accepted by colleges across the country. Such coursework concludes with a subject matter exam, scored from 1 to 5 (5 being the highest). A score of three or more usually attains college credit. Students can take advantage of this stellar program as early as freshman year.

Last year's AP stats: 
  • 241 students took part in the Academy's AP program. 
  • 547 AP exams were administered.
  • 78% of students averaged a three or higher their exams.


CBA Scholars' Program

In 2010, under the direction of History Chair Mr. Jeffrey Matson, the Academy initiated the Brother Michael Dwyer Scholars Program. The program gives select juniors the opportunity to explore advanced topics, personal interests, and independent research beyond the parameters of the traditional classroom. The result is a chance to both pursue and demonstrate scholarly study and research on a university level, ultimately enhancing the student's profile for the college admission process.

During junior year, scholars undertake an intensive interdisciplinary seminar series designed to enrich their knowledge of a particular historical era. The seminars meet twice a cycle and do not interfere/limit the normal class schedule. Previous seminars have included Russia and the West, The Roman Empire, America Today, and The World in Crisis:1919-1939. 

During senior year, scholars develop an independent project that permits them to explore in-depth areas of individual interest under the direction of a personal mentor. Mentors may be faculty members or alumni in the private sector.
