Saints' Scholars Program

Acceptance upon admission as a Saints Scholar is a great honor for an incoming freshman. Admission is a highly competitive process and only a select few achieve acceptance into the program. To qualify, students must have an outstanding citizenship record, a minimum 3.7 GPA on their 7th grade report card, and score high or advanced in their 7th grade standardized test and/or in the upper percentile of the SAHS Placement Test administered in January.
Once accepted as a Saints Scholar, students are enrolled in SAHS honors level classes.  Each student will have a unique program of classes tailored to their particular strengths and needs.
Upon completion of a certain number of Honors/AP courses, at the end of their four years at SAHS, Saints Scholars will be recognized for their achievements.  The highest honor attainable is the "Saints Scholar Graduation with Distinction" award upon graduation.
