The Academic Letter and How it Works

Cory's got his nice pretty Academic Letter now. I was going to check and see how much it would cost to buy him a letter jacket to display his letters on, but they wanted a school password to access the site so I'll have to wait. He's not really sure he wants a letter jacket, anyway, but it doesn't hurt to check.

They explained the requirements for receiving an Academic letter. It's based on grade point average. For every semester a student receives a GPA of 3-3.49, he gets 1 point. For a GPA of 3.5 and above, he gets 2 points. When he gets to 6 points, he gets a letter. When he gets to 12 points, he gets what they call the Top Cat award. Apparently there were quite a few kids from Cory's class who received their letters tonight. These kids have only been in high school for 3 semesters now, so they're definitely on track for that Top Cat award.
