DeLaSalle High School congratulates 38 members of its graduating Class of 2022 who have achieved the honor of “Distinguished Scholar.” These 38 students have earned a cumulative grade point average of 4.0 or better through the first semester of their senior year. (With accelerated grade point values for Honors and Advanced Placement courses, the range of grade point averages is as high as 4.34.)
Especially this year, in the midst of a pandemic and the many adaptations, we salute these scholars, their parents and families, their teachers at DeLaSalle, and all teachers and adult mentors who have had a positive influence on their education to date.
The “Distinguished Scholar” designation is the program by which DeLaSalle honors graduating students for exemplary grades over four years. With the vast majority of incoming ninth graders having proven to be highly successful middle school students — and then continuing their strong academic performance in high school — DeLaSalle discontinued using class rank and acknowledgement of only two graduates as valedictorian and salutatorian twenty years ago. Annually, between 97-99 percent of DeLaSalle graduates matriculate to college, and the school salutes the high levels of academic achievement across the entirety of each graduating class.
