Obridge Academy Honor’s Program

According to the College Board, “Honors classes often offer the same curriculum as regular classes but are tailored for high-achieving students – covering additional topics or some topics in greater depth.” The College Board also encourages high school students to challenge themselves because, as they say, “Studies have shown that the rigor of a student’s high school curriculum is the single best predictor of success in college.”

By enrolling in the Obridge Honors Program students will not only be able to finish high school in three years, they will also be challenged more with material that is more in-depth than regular college prep courses. The program consists of 18 credits, instead of the standard 24 and has fewer elective possibilities. Students can still take a foreign language, either Chinese or Spanish, and an additional elective from the wide array of Obridge electives.

Students in the Obridge Academy Honors Program will also qualify for membership in our Obridge Academy National Honor Society of Secondary Schools (NHS) Chapter. Students are inducted by a Faculty Council comprised of Obridge teachers and staff and must complete assigned service projects and other assignments. Students selected for the NHS will enjoy exclusive benefits, such as:

  • Access to leadership forums
  • Scholarship competition eligibility
  • College admission guidance/financial aid planning
  • Active, honorary, or alumni NHS status
  • The right to wear the NHS emblem bearing its official insignia
  • Upon graduation, a diploma that reflects completion of the Obridge Academy Honors Program and the NHS designation
