ENC’s Honors Scholar Program supplements students’ academic, spiritual, and ethical development through courses and activities designed to stretch the mind and strengthen the heart. Eligible students are encouraged to participate in honors classes, extracurricular activities, service projects, and learning opportunities with contemporary scholars in various fields. The program continues the long history of academic excellence at ENC and participating students may graduate with the transcript designation of Honors Scholar.
Incoming first-year students are evaluated on their SAT, ACT, and high school GPA scores, as well as other factors. Students with strong academic potential are invited to join the Honors Scholar Program at the beginning of their first semester. Thereafter, a student may join and participate in Honors classes and activities if their composite GPA remains at or above 3.5. Because the program emphasizes intelligence and character, Honors Scholars are expected to exercise greater initiative in scholarship and pursue the disciplines and virtues associated with character.
Benefits Enjoyed by Honors Scholars:
Honors Scholars enjoy access to the Honors Scholar Program socials, lectures, trips, and leadership activities. Eligible students may enroll in Honors Scholar Program courses and also have the option of contracting regular courses for honors credit. Any honors courses completed with a grade of at least a B will be indicated as Honors Level on academic transcripts.
Students who successfully complete all Honors Scholar Program requirements will be recognized at graduation ceremonies, and receive an Honors Scholar notation on their diplomas and transcripts.
