Students meeting the requirements for graduation have some very special activities ahead. Be sure to see the Graduation Requirements to be certain you’re on track.

Valedictorian –  The valedictorian for 8th Grade graduation is the student with the highest GPA, calculated to 0.01 place, for the 7th and 8th grade years. The student must have attended Santa Ynez School for both the seventh and eighth grade years. In the case of a tie, all students with the same highest GPA shall share the title of Valedictorian. If the second place student(s) is within 0.05 grade points of the Valedictorian, then the second place student(s) shall be recognized as the Salutatorian. If the difference between the first and second place students’ GPA is greater than 0.05 then no Salutatorian shall be honored. The GPA shall be calculated on a 4-point scale for the core academic subjects only. (Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Science). PE and elective grades shall not be considered.
