Liberty County High School and Bradwell Institute recognized by the Georgia State School superintendent.

Liberty County High School and Bradwell Institute have been recognized by Georgia State School Superintendent, Dr. John Barge, as 2014 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Schools.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP classes offer rigorous college-level learning options to students in high school.

Students who receive a 3, 4 or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit. The 2014 AP Honor Schools are named in five categories, based on the results of 2013 AP classes and exams. Liberty and Bradwell received the AP Access & Support Schools Honor. The award goes to schools with at least 30% of their AP exams taken by students who identified themselves as African-American and/or Hispanic and 30% of all AP exams earning scores of 3 or higher. 

"There are so many Georgia schools that have great success with Advanced Placement," said Superintendent Barge in a news release. "I am so pleased to see this success grow to more and more of our schools this year.

These achievements can be attributed to the outstanding students and teachers at each of our AP Honor Schools." For more information, contact John Lyles at jlyles@liberty.k12.ga.us or (912) 876-2161.
