BOHS believes that recognizing student achievement motivates and empowers everyone to higher levels of success while increasing school spirit and connectivity. For that reason, there are many avenues for student recognition based upon academics, co-curricular involvement, character, and service. Whether demonstrated through praise in the classroom, induction into an honor society, rewards for standardized test performance, or honors at graduation, the staff, school, and community considers student recognition essential and values its benefits.

ACADEMIC BOOSTER CLUB (ABC)

Academic Booster Club is a parent organization established to support, encourage, and recognize student academic achievement on all levels at BOHS. ABC is the co-organizer for the annual Brea 8K Classic Run and coordinates the Lettered Scholars Program where select students are invited each spring to the Lettered Scholars Dessert to be awarded an academic letter and/or medals for their academic achievement. Students are eligible as follows: Chenille Letter (3.75 academic GPA for 3 semesters*); Silver Medal (3.75 academic GPA for 4 to 6 semesters*); Gold Medal (3.75 academic GPA for 7 semesters*). Note: *Qualifying academic GPA for transfer students is determined by BOHS staff advisor. ABC financially supports academic competition programs at BOHS including Academic Decathlon and Speech and Debate while awarding scholarships to graduating seniors.

HONOR ROLL

All Honor Roll grade point average (GPA) calculations are based not on cumulative GPA, but the total un-weighted GPA for each semester. Students who earn a 3.0 - 3.499 GPA will be placed on the Semester Honor Roll while students who earn a 3.5 - 4.0 GPA will be placed on the Principal’s List Honor Roll. These honor rolls are posted on the school website after each semester.

HONORS AT GRADUATION

Honors at graduation include the following:

BOHS CAREER PATHWAYS
BOHS COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
CA SCHOLARSHIP FEDERATION (CSF) SEAL-BEARER (CSF Course List)
DISTINGUISHED SCHOLARS
GOLDEN STATE SEAL MERIT DIPLOMA (GSSMD)
HONORS GRADUATES
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY (NHS)
VALEDICTORIAN AND SALUTATORIAN

A description of each honor, its eligibility requirements, and when it is distributed is available on the BOHS Honors at Graduation page and in the student planner on pages 29 - 31.

All honors listed for graduation will be revoked if a student is academically dishonest (defined as the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for work by dishonest, deceptive, fraudulent, or unauthorized means). Collaborative work is not academic dishonesty when specifically permitted or required by a teacher. Violations will be documented in the student’s discipline file, reflected in letters of recommendation, and result in disciplinary consequences as listed in the “Academic Dishonesty” section of the student planner (pages 6 - 7).
