Six Students Inducted into Cum Laude Society

Since 1969, The Montgomery Academy has honored academic excellence by awarding membership in Cum Laude Society to its highest-achieving students. The Montgomery Academy Chapter of the Cum Laude Society was chartered in 1969 and remains as one of only three chapters in the state of Alabama. The Cum Laude Society recognizes academic achievement in secondary schools for the purpose of promoting excellence (areté), justice (diké), and honor (timé). The major objective is to recognize the highest levels of academic excellence based on grade-point average and level of academic courses taken.

The number of students chosen for membership in Cum Laude cannot exceed the top 10% of the senior class based on work completed through the junior year, and the top 20% based on work completed in the senior year. In addition to a student’s average for the five core classes and all AP classes, the Cum Laude Faculty Committee also considers the rigor of the student's academic load and his or her scholarship and intellectual curiosity. Students inducted this fall include Claire Gary, Kareena Singh, Katie Brown, Katherine Sinco, Holden Habermacher, and Elizabeth Ray.

Congratulations to these students on this accomplishment!
