The Academic Achievement Team

The team is comprised of 23 outstanding high school seniors, selected by their high school administrators based on their exceptional academic records, demonstrated application of academic skills, and noteworthy involvement in leadership and community activities.

Each nominee demonstrates a commitment to learning and involvement both inside and outside the classroom. In the 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 two 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. Nearly $7,500 in scholarships is presented, as each the team member receives a $300 scholarship, the Stellar Students receive an additional $200, and the Inspiration recipients receives an additional $100.

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.
