Honor Graduate Program
The purpose of the Honor Graduate Program at Kenai Central High School will be to give recognition to those students who have chosen to challenge themselves academically by taking the most rigorous academic course load available.
Graduating seniors will be designated “Honor Graduates” if they meet the following academic requirements during their high school careers (assuming these courses are offered to their graduating class). If an AP course is not offered to a graduating class the non-AP course is required:
Must take all AP courses offered at KCHS for their graduation class
- At least 3 years of Honors English (must include AP English Literature)
- Science & Math – 7 credits
- Math: Must include Advanced Algebra, Precalculus, and AP Calculus
- Science: Must include: Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, and Physics
- World Language – 2 credits
- 2 years/levels of the same World Language
- AP World History
- AP US History
- Students must have participated in some aspect of the school community such as student council, student drama production, co-curricular activities, etc.
Grade Point Average:
- Students must have a 3.25 grade point average
- Students may substitute an equivalent college class for each of the required credits outlined above, but must submit these substitutions to the counseling office for credit and approval toward the honors graduate designation.
- Transfer students may apply for honors graduate designation upon demonstration of completion of similar course work at their previous school(s) and completion of all honors credits appropriate to their grade level after matriculation at KCHS and all other requirements as outlined above.
- Honor graduates will receive recognition at graduation by designation in the printed program and announcement as they receive their diplomas.
Valedictorians & Salutatorians
- KCHS will recognize all students who will receive the honors diploma and have a 4.0 or higher as a valedictorian of the class. KCHS will no longer recognize a salutatorian.
