Graduation Honors

Graduation Honors

Beginning with the graduating Class of 2019 students will be honored at graduation using university-aligned Latin honors designations.  The Chatham County Schools Board of Education approved this change during the March 12, 2018 monthly meeting. These new designations are listed below for reference.

  • Summa Cum Laude for students with weighted grade point average of 4.5 or higher. This Latin designation means “With Highest Honor”.

  • Magna Cum Laude for students with weighted grade point average of 4.0 to 4.49. This Latin designation means “With Great Honor”.

  • Cum Laude for students with weighted grade point average of 3.5 to 3.99. This Latin designation means “With Honor”.
