Thirty-nine Mattituck High School students, 18 Southold students and four Greenporters have achieved Advanced Placement Scholar status based on their exam scores.

Through the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program, high school students can take AP college-level courses. Many four-year colleges in the United States provide college credit or advanced placement to students who successfully score a 3 or above, based on a scale of 1 to 5.

Only about 18 percent of the more than 1.8 million students worldwide who took AP classes earned “scholar” distinction. The award is given to those who score a 3 or higher in at least three classes.


At Mattituck, 12 students were named AP Scholars with Distinction, earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of the tests. The tests are graded on a 4.0 scale.

The students are Catherine Austin, Ashley Finger, Marissa Russo, Zachary Branker, Colin McCoy, Douglas Schantz, Myles Caracciolo, Lillian McCullough, Charles Schneider, Sarah Conlin, Peter Olsen-Harbich and Laura Stakey.

Another 12 Mattituck students were named AP Scholars with Honor, achieving average scores of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of the tests.

These students are Johanna Baglivi, Madeleine Burlingame, Sarah Pozzolano, John Bradley, Colleen Krupski, Kevin Reyer, Cassandra Brown, Rebecca Mincieli, Shannon Voelkel, Charles Buckel, Zachary Palladino and Theresa Zuhoski.

Fifteen Mattituck students received AP Scholar Awards by completing three or more AP exams and achieving scores of 3 or higher.

They are Cara Benedetto, Melissa Hand, Jacqueline Maloney, Jessica De Mato, Gillian Hudson, Joseph Pfaff, Jake Gamberg, Emily Ianno, Evan Reed-Avison, Jonathon Giordano, Colin Keil, Jennifer Siegfried, Danielle Grim, Andrew L’Hommedieu and Claire Smith.


In Southold, 18 high school students were named AP Scholars.

Christopher D’Amico, Stephen D’Amico, Tyler Mehrman, Jacqueline Solo and Ryan Wilson were named Scholars of Distinction.

Ivy Crouteau and Meghan Kelley were named AP Scholars with Honor.

Other Southold AP Scholars are Jacob Boergesson, Jonathan Cepelak, Abbey Clark, Miranda Franke, Nicole Kozlowska, Stephanie Kubiak, Mary Grace Matthaei, Chrysanthos Nicholas, Zachary Sacher, Jennifer Smither and Desmond Tetrault.


Greenport High School lists four AP Scholar Award winners — James McEnaney, Zoe Panagopoulos, Sarah Parker and Rachel Stephenson.

During the past two years, Greenport AP students averaged scores of 3.4, and 80 percent scored 3 or higher on the exams.
