Academics

Scecina Memorial High School’s mission is to motivate our diverse and gifted community of students “to attain educational excellence, be lifelong learners and live as servant leaders.”

 

President’s Academic Excellence Awards

The President’s Academic Excellence Awards ceremony recognizes Scecina Memorial students for their outstanding academic performance during the school year. The ceremony takes place in late April or early May.

Underclassmen
We recognize our freshmen, sophomore, and junior students who are either in the Top 10 of their respective classes or whose grade point average is a 4.0 or higher. The freshmen, sophomores, and juniors receive a plaque from the school.

Seniors
We recognize our seniors who meet the same criteria. Each of the seniors is asked to select an influential person in his or her life and to write a brief reflection about that mentor. The mentors are asked to do the same for the student. We invite each student to come forward with his or her mentor, and our Principal and President read their reflections. Each senior receives a plaque, the mentor’s written reflection, and a ring from the school.

The mentors receive the senior’s written reflection.
