About Graduation

  • Graduation Requirements for Ceremony Participation

    Participation in the graduation ceremony is a privilege, not a right.  In order to participate in graduation activities, seniors are required to meet all statutory, school board and school requirements and participate in the mandatory graduation rehearsal.

    Graduation Recognitions

    During the ceremony, and within the printed program, we will recognize students graduating with honors. We will use the student's cumulative weighted GPA as calculated on the 7th-semester report card. Note- We do not round up.

    • a Valedictorian (highest GPA)
    • a Salutatorian (second highest GPA)
    • Summa Cum Laude (4.4 and higher) - gold cord
    • Magna Cum Laude (4.25 - 4.399) - silver cord
    • Cum Laude (4.0 - 4.249)- bronze cord
    • Commended Scholars (3.5 - 3.999) -  white cord

    Additionally, these organizations may award honor cords to students who meet the specific membership criteria as determined by the organization's sponsor:

    • AVID
    • National Honor Society
    • National Art Honor Society
    • National Spanish Honor Society
    • Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society
    • International Thespian Society
    • National Press Association
    • National Technical Honor Society
    • Certified Nursing Program
