HONOR PROGRAM:

A program to encourage our high school students to become people of scholarship, honor, and integrity, while developing a Christ-like attitude of service, leadership, and involvement.


2017-18 School Year:

1. Aaron Academy, which seeks to assist and encourage parents in training their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord and to help students meet the highest academic standards, offers an honor program based on the student’s outstanding academic performance and his/her manifestation of the excellence demanded by our Christian faith in all areas of our lives.

The Honor Program graduate will have a gold sash at the Aaron Academy graduation ceremony, an honor seal on the diploma, and a notation on the transcript reflecting participation in the Honor Program if all four components are completed by the deadlines in the student’s senior year. Students may participate in grades 10, 11, and 12 if they make application each year and meet the criteria of academic and personal excellence. We encourage our students to participate all three years; however, to graduate with the special designations listed above, it is only required to have fulfilled the criteria in the 12th grade school year.

2. There are four components to the Aaron Academy Honor Program:
  Scholarship: The AA honor student must be working toward a College Preparatory Diploma, have a cumulative high school grade point average of at least 3.70/4.0, and score at least a 25 composite on the ACT assessment by their senior year. Detailed information is included in the AAHP packet.

  Character: The AA honor student adheres to a code of honor and strives to be Christ-like by living morally and ethically.

  Faith &
Service:
The AA honor student indicates by an Affidavit of Church Attendance and Involvement that he/she is committed to developing a deeper and stronger faith by attending and being involved in a Christian community of service. With an Affidavit of Service, the student describes his/her voluntary contribution of time, talent, and/or treasure to others.

  Leadership &
Citizenship:
The AA honor student demonstrates by an Affidavit of Leadership/Citizenship that he/she takes seriously his/her civic responsibilities and has a high regard for freedom, justice, and democracy.

** The activities for the affidavits must be different every year. **

3. To qualify for the 2017-18 Aaron Academy Honor Program, you must complete the application and pay the $15 fee due November 3, 2017.

4. For 10th and 11th graders who have not yet taken the ACT, a score at or above the 80th percentile on a high school level Stanford achievement test may be substituted, at the discretion of the Honor Program coordinator. Parents need to be aware that your student must take an achievement test in the 9th grade to meet the requirement for participation in the 10th grade.

**The Honor Program maintains a strict adherence to application, affidavit, and testing deadlines. There are no exceptions for late submissions. **
