• CUM LAUDE RECOGNITION

    Effective with the Class of 2020, all CUSD high schools will be using the Cum Laude recognition program. This will replace the concept of designating a valedictorian and salutatorian at graduation. This recognition program will be used to acknowledge the most academic successful students at graduation. More of our outstanding seniors will be recognized than the valedictorian/salutatorian concept allowed. The categories for distinction under the Cum Laude recognition program are as follows:

     

    • Cum Laude - meaning "with praise". To qualify a student must achieve a 3.75 - 4.24 GPA.
    • Magna Cum Laude - meaning "with great praise". To qualify a student must achieve a 4.25 - 4.49 GPA
    • Summa Cum Laude - meaning "with the highest praise". To qualify a student must achieve a 4.5 - 5.0 GPA

     

     

    Perry High School will issue a tassel with a specialty charm for the three different levels.
