New Format for Graduation Honors

New Format for 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”.

This new process for honoring our graduates will replace the traditional designation of ‘valedictorian’ and ‘salutatorian’ titles beginning with the graduating Class of 2019.
