Graduation Honors

The top scholastic honors of Valedictorian and Salutatorian (Board Policy 5430) are determined by calculating the cumulative grade point average at the end of the 7th semester of the high school experience.  The student with the highest grade point average shall be named valedictorian, and the second highest grade point average shall be named salutatorian. Students who have achieved identical grade point averages for valedictorian honors calculations will be subject to a series of tie-breaking procedures (Administrative Guideline 5430).  

Graduating students will be recognized with the Latin Honors system, using the following guidelines:

Summa Cum Laude = 4.3 or higher
Magna Cum Laude = 4.0 to 4.29
Cum Laude = 3.85 to 3.99
