The Academic Achievement Team

The program recognizes 26 outstanding high school seniors; nominated by their high school administrators based on their exceptional academic records, demonstrated application of their academic skills, and noteworthy involvement in leadership and community activities.

Each candidate demonstrates a commitment to learning and involvement both inside and outside the classroom. In their community they are volunteers, leaders, and agents for change.

All the nominees are invited to complete an application, submit essays, and be interviewed to determine which student (or students) have achieved the exceptional designation of “Stellar Student.” On March 9, HCOE will host an Awards Ceremony to recognize and celebrate all Academic Achievement nominees. $8,200 in scholarships are presented, as each the nominee receives a $300 scholarship, the Stellar Student Award(s) provides an additional $200 scholarship.

Academic Achievement provides a process to honor top performing students beyond their school community with a monetary scholarship, community recognition, and validation of the young scholars’ successes.

Look for the 2023 Academic Achievement Team on this page in February!
