Oak Hill School provides students with a rigorous academic program designed to prepare students for college. We believe that students who excel in academics, the arts, athletics, or leadership should have their achievements celebrated by the community.
Oak Hill School offers the following honors:
Students in grades 6-12 earning a 4.0 GPA or higher (or equivalent) will be placed on the Headmaster’s List. This honor will be put on students’ transcripts. They will receive a certificate at the end of each semester. Each spring the Headmaster conducts a special activity with the high school award recipients.
National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
Students in grades 6-12 earning a 3.67 GPA or higher for more than two consecutive terms at Oak Hill School are eligible to participate in National Honor Society (NHS) (grades 9-12) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) (grades 6-8). NHS and NJHS are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character.
Students in grades 6-12 earning a 3.5 GPA or higher will be placed on the Dean’s List. The Dean’s List recognizes students that are achieving a high average GPA in their rigorous academic studies while at OHS. This honor will be put on high school students’ transcripts. They will receive a certificate and additional recognition at the end of each semester. Each spring the Dean of Students conducts a special activity with the high school award recipients.
Student of the Month
Each month of the school year, the Register Guard honors a student of the month from every area high school. Oak Hill also selects a middle school student of the month. Students of the month are nominated by a faculty member based on how they have embodied Oak Hill’s mission, to be a caring, responsible critical thinker, and are then selected by the OHS faculty and staff based on student achievement, citizenship, and behavior. Every high school Student of the month receives a certificate from the Register Guard and several copies of their column in the newspaper. The high school Student of the month has a parking space in the pavilion parking lot.
