Valedictorian Application --

Dear Parents and Students,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Valedictorian Application to our graduating seniors. The Valedictorian will be awarded to one senior, and that senior will be chosen on a rubric consisting of GPA, ACT score, Honors, Concurrent Enrollment, and AP classes. The Salutatorian will be awarded to the senior with the next highest score. Both the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian will be invited to speak at graduation, but this will not be a requirement.

Seniors wishing to be considered for this honor will need to complete an application. The application must be completed online by midnight on April 30, 2024, to have them processed in time for graduation. Students MUST APPLY to be considered for Valedictorian/Salutatorian.

Applications are available through this link on our website - Seniors can also find the application on their Homeroom CANVAS. 

Because both GPA and difficulty of classes will be considered, a student can be the Valedictorian when they do not have a 4.0 GPA, but have taken very difficult classes (e.g. Honors, AP, Concurrent). However, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.85 will be required to apply.

We look forward to presenting this honor this year. Valedictorian/Salutatorian will be notified on or before May 10th. Students who do not apply for Valedictorian/Salutatorian WILL NOT be considered.

Thank You,

Copper Hills High Administration
