About Cum Laude Society
Established in 1906, the society is a national organization that recognizes academic achievement by secondary school students. The society honors scholastic achievement while striving to encourage qualities of excellence, justice and honor. Member schools establish specific criteria for selection of student members based on the school's academic values and culture.
The criteria include cumulative grade-point average, honors and advanced-placement courses, academic achievement across the curriculum, and academic enrichment activities outside of the classroom.
