To qualify, sophomores, juniors and seniors must improve their first quarter GPA by .3 of a point in the third quarter. For example, if a student has a 2.5 GPA in the first quarter of the 2016/2017 school year, and posts a third quarter GPA of 2.8 or better, that student qualifies. Only the first and third quarter GPAs, quarter vs. quarter, will be used.
Any student with a 3.5 GPA or higher in the first quarter is automatically qualified no matter what happens in the third quarter. Students must have a minimum of a 2.0 in the first quarter to qualify.
All sophomores, juniors and seniors at Academy of the Canyons, Bowman, Canyon, Golden Valley, Hart, Saugus, Sequoia, Valencia and West Ranch High Schools are eligible.
