Honors and Earned Honors

Honors courses (also called "Standalone Honors") are offered in some core courses in 9th and 10th grades. Students register for the Honors course and receive honors credit upon successful course completion.

Universal Honors (also called "Earned Honors") are offered in some core courses in 9th and 10th grades. To earn honors in these courses, students must earn a C or better in the course, and have an average of 3.2 or higher on predetermined performance assessments. Students do not need to predetermine if they would like to pursue the honors option during course selection.

Both Honors and Earned Honors provide access to rigorous and challenging learning for high school scholars. Both prepare students for success in advanced coursework.

Contact your school counselor for more information and to determine which courses are offered for either Honors or Earned Honors.
