Board Approves Latin Honors Distinctions

Starting with the class of 2015-16, students at Seneca East High School may now graduate with Latin Honor distinctions in order to recognize academic achievement in our students. Seniors earning a cumulative GPA of 3.5 - 3.7499 after seven semesters of study will graduate cum laude. Students who maintain a 3.75 to a 3.899 on their cumulative GPA may graduate magna cum laude, and top students earning a 3.9 or over will be graduating summa cum laude. Each distinction will be noted in the graduation programs and will also be designated with colored cords to be worn during the graduation ceremony. The Latin Honors system will be an additional recognition to the school's Top 10%, National Honor Society members, and Honors Diploma recipients, and will give our students additional recognition when filling out college and scholarship application forms.
