Valedictorian/Salutatorian Determination

Valedictorian/Salutatorian DeterminationGo To Top of Page

The valedictorian for a graduating class will be the student with the highest total weighted GPA based on 210 credits (the first seven semesters of high school at 30 credits per semester). If a student took seven classes (35 credits) during a semester, the six classes reflecting the highest amount of grade points will be used. If a student took fewer than 30 credits during any semester, the courses reflecting the highest amount of grade points from a semester(s) in which the student took more than 30 credits will be used to provide a 30 credit total. In the event of an exact tie in total weighted GPA, both students will be named valedictorians. No more than 210 credits will be used to calculate the final GPA. Courses taken at a community college, university, or other post-secondary institution or supplementary program will not be used for valedictorian and salutatorian determinations. 

The salutatorian for a graduating class will be the student with the second highest GPA using the criteria noted above. Any student with a total weighted GPA using the criteria noted above within 0.025 points will also be considered a salutatorian.
