Valedictorian Criteria

Academic Excellence

The valedictorian is selected each year from the graduating class and is considered the top academic student of his/her class. Criteria are based on the Rutherford Scholarship and are calculated based on grade 12 level courses. The average is calculated from six designated courses as follows:

One of: 

·       English 30-1, 30-2  

At least two of: 

·       Mathematics 30-1, 30-2, or 31 

·       Social Studies 30-1, 30-2 

·       Biology 30 

·       Chemistry 30 

·       Physics 30 

·       A language other than one used above at the Gr. 12 level 

Any two courses with a minimum five credit value at Grade 12 level including those listed above and combined advanced CTS courses. 

Religious Education 35 

Priority will be given to the achievement of those with 30-1 classes over 30-2 classes in determining the valedictorian
