As Carter students accomplish personal and academic milestones, these academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs serve to distinguish themselves amongst peers and during the college admission and scholarship application process.

These programs celebrate students’ hard work in high school and showcase their strong academic performance. The academic honors for rural area, Black, Indigenous, and/or Latino students allow students to share their strong academic achievements with colleges and scholarship programs seeking to recruit diverse talent.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate our students and recognize them for the great work they’ve been doing. We’re proud of their strong academic performance in the classroom and on College Board assessments like the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, and AP® exams,” said Principal Mrs. Gomez-Perez. “There’s so much that makes our students unique, and receiving this honor reinforces this as an asset for their future.”

Tarlin Ray, senior vice president of BigFuture® at College Board, said the college recruitment process is becoming more challenging for students to stand out. 

 “This is a benefit not only for students but also for colleges and universities committed to recruiting diverse and talented students,” Ray said.
