Valedictorian/Salutatorian/Cum Laude Recognition

School Counseling office staff independently hand calculate and verify the third quarter grad point averages using district's calculation process to determine the valedictorian (first in class), salutatorian (second in class) and cum laude (with honors) recipients. 

  • Cum Laude: GPA of 90-92.999

  • Magna Cum Laude: GPA of 93-95.999

  • Summa Cum Laude: 96-100

Note: No rounding up can be done for these grade point averages. In addition, WCCS does not lock our rank at this time; therefore final rank/gpa may change at year-end completion of all courses.
