Honor Graduate Status/Graduation Cords
- If your overall GPA after 1st semester of senior year is 90.0 or higher, you are an honor graduate and will receive a tri-colored variegated cord to wear at graduation.
- GPA's are not rounded, so an 89.9 will not qualify for honor graduate status.
- If you are close to 90.0, and bring your GPA up to or above 90.0 by the end of second semester, you will receive honor graduate status.
Graduation Ceremony 2020

More information is forthcoming regarding a virtual graduation and possibly a traditional ceremony during the summer. As details are defined, they will be communicated by the local school.
