The Cum Laude Society is an academic honor society founded to reward high achievement in high school coursework. There are 382 chapters of the Cum Laude Society worldwide, and only four in Indiana (Canterbury, Culver, Park Tudor, and University).
The number of people who can be inducted into our chapter is limited. Up to 20% of a class can be inducted into the Cum Laude Society, 10% inducted in the junior year and 10% inducted in the senior year. This rule is set by the national organization.
Because this organization honors strictly academic work, a student’s weighted, cumulative GPA and total course load are the major factors in determining induction. However, in the case of ties, the Cum Laude Committee may take other factors into account.
Eligible students must also have demonstrated University’s Core Values, as well as the values of the society (excellence, justice and honor) throughout their career. In general, students considered for induction have a GPA in the top quartile of their class, and in some years, all inductees have had a GPA above 4.0.
