Graduate with Honors

Students who score at or above all of the subject area benchmarks on the ACT or equivalent score on the SAT will graduate with honors. Last ACT to count before graduation is April of senior year. The benchmark scores can come from different test administrations not just from one administration.  See chart below and explanation of benchmarks.

ACT’s College Readiness Benchmarks

Benchmarks are scores on the ACT subject area tests that represent  the level of achievement required for students to have a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in corresponding credit-bearing first year college courses.  These college courses include English Composition, College Algebra, an introductory social science course, and Biology.  The data is based on 98 institutions and more than 90,000 students.  Also, included are the benchmarks for the PLAN in 10th grade and the EXPLORE in 8th grade to track the students progress toward the ACT benchmarks.  The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are:
