The Honor Roll for Grades 9 – 12 is computed at the end of each semester. A semester grade point average of 3.20 or higher is required for a student to be on Honor Roll. In the computation of the grade point average, all subjects are counted.
Students with a cumulative average of 3.50 or higher are invited to apply to the National Honor Society after the second semester of their sophomore or junior year. Applications are reviewed by the faculty, and admission is based on character, leadership, scholarship, and service. Students must adhere to the by-laws in order to remain a member in good standing.
First Honor, Honorable Mention, Most Improved, and Light of Christ award certificates are given to those students who have earned recognition for their outstanding achievements in academics, extracurricular activities, and sports. Awards are announced during an Honors Assembly held at the end of the school year.
Student report cards are “computer processed” and mailed to parents quarterly. Any errors should be reported to the teacher who originally issued the grade. Changes on official records must have the written approval of the teacher who gave the original grade. If a student received an “I”, he/she must hand in the make-up work within two weeks of the end of the marking period, unless otherwise approved by the Registrar.
Honor For Excellence Awards
The top graduating seniors, based on overall GPA, will be honored with an award presented to them at graduation. The students to give the welcoming and farewell addresses at the graduation ceremony will be chosen from this group. This decision will rest solely with the Principal.
