    Academic Letter Application

    We are committed to celebrating our student academic achievement. Current freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior students who meet the following criteria, are eligible to apply for consideration of being awarded an academic letter each year of their high school tenure. Achieving an Academic Letter is an excellent accolade to make note of on academic resumes and college applications.

    A chenille letter and bar will be awarded the first year. Each subsequent year, students will receive a bar, upon lettering.

    Applications must be completed each year.

    Academic letters will be awarded at the end of each school year for seniors, and awarded in the Fall for all other students.

    Please take note of the application due dates found on the application.
