Honors Application Process

Honors Application Process

Students must fill out an application provided by the English Dept. on Jan 22nd or Jan. 23rd. Please see the application form for criteria for Honors/AP placement. Have your parent/guardian sign the form. The application is due January 29th. Students may also download the application posted on the English Department webpage.

Please note that final placement in Honors is contingent on continued excellent work in the second semester. If a student falls below expectations, honors admission may be revoked.

Appeal Process

Students must first meet with their English teacher to receive information about why they were not originally placed in the selected class. Then, students may send an email to the English Department Chair, Mr. Dan Vollert, describing why an appeal for Honors/AP placement should be granted. The appeal is due by February 16th and should include:

  • Full Name
  • Current English Class and Teacher
  • Reason original application was denied
  • Reason for appeal
  • Detailed description of personal goals for achievement for the course.

Appeals submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
