Honors and AP Program
Paschal has one of the most-recognized and valued Honors and AP (Advanced Placement) Programs among all of Fort Worth's public and private high schools, helping Paschal students be well-prepared for a collegiate experience. The AP program consists of possibly several years of preparation courses (known as “honors” or “Pre-AP” courses) at the 9th, 10th, and 11th grade years and often includes courses at the 8th grade and even at the 7th grade in middle school. The culmination of the process occurs when the student takes AP courses (college level classes) and then participates in the AP exams in May of the school year. Based on the scores of the AP exams, students may be able to earn college credit by "placing out" of college courses. However, the major benefit of the program is the excellent level of preparation students will have for college work. For more information, please talk to Paschal's Advanced Academic Office at 817-814-5041.
The SAT and ACT are the two primary tests students must take for college admission. Paschal is well-known for its summer SAT Camp. Students all over the city come from both public and private schools to take advantage of this special preparation course. Check this site regularly to learn more about the program, when it is offered and complete an application. Remember to check with specific colleges about which test/s they require.
Paschal is considered the "school of choice" by hundreds of Fort Worth families, with many transferring to the school to take advantage of its outstanding academics. Paschal has more Merit Scholars than any other Fort Worth school, public and private. The following demonstrates the standard of excellence for which Paschal strives.
National Merit and Minority Scholars
A Superintendent Scholar is a merit honoree (semifinalist, commended or minority students) and/or an AP Scholar (students who scored 3 or higher on at least three AP exams). In 2013, Paschal has 91 students qualified as Superintendent Scholars. Click here for list of Superintendent Scholars.
