The Honors Academy promotes exceptional academics, leadership and community service among students.
How to Apply
Students apply for the program and are selected based on receiving Pass Plus in English, math and social studies on their seventh-grade ISTEP tests or based on the Aspire ACT test scores during their freshman year. Students then submit a creative response before interviewing with the selection committee.
What is Required
Over the course of their four years at Concordia, students will be required to take Advanced Placement and dual-enrollment courses; attend lectures and training for leadership awareness, cultural growth and community networking; and complete community service hours each year, ranging from 15 hours as a freshman to 35 hours as a senior.
All the while, students will be expected to maintain academic excellence with high grades and then demonstrate their work through a senior research project.
Upon graduation, these students will receive distinctive recognition and a special notation on their high school transcript.
