Students who achieve a cumulative GPA for a school year of 3.67 or better will be named to the A Honor Roll. Students who achieve a cumulative GPA for a school year between 3.0 and 3.66 will be named to the B Honor Roll.
Students who are named to the A Honor Roll in any of their four years of high school will receive an Academic Letter in the fall following the achievement. The first year students achieve this honor they will earn a letter; each additional year that students are named to the A Honor Roll they will earn a bar.
Graduates who have achieved a cumulative GPA for all four years of high school of 3.67 or better (an A average) will graduate with gold honor chords. Those who achieved a cumulative GPA for all four years of high school between 3.0 and 3.66 (a B average) will graduate with white honor chords.
The graduate who holds the number one class rank after the first semester of senior year is complete will be named the valedictorian. The graduate who holds the number two class rank after the first semester of senior year is complete will be named the salutatorian. In the case of very close GPA’s for the number one and two ranked students, administration may hold the decision until the end of quarter three. In the event of a tie for either valedictorian or salutatorian, the honor will be shared by both students. To be eligible for these honors, graduates must have attended Christian Life Academy for three semesters prior to the decision.
Part-time PSEO students may be eligible for valedictorian and salutatorian honors. However, only PSEO credits that are from the core curriculum of graduation requirements will figure into the valedictorian and salutatorian GPA decision, not elective credits. The core curriculum would include Social Studies, English, Mathematics, Science, and Foreign Languages. The elective credits will still be a part of the student transcript and cumulative GPA.
