Cum Laude Society

As a result of the hard work and scholarly achievement of our students, and the teachers who help them grow into powerful learners, Perkiomen School's chapter of the Cum Laude Society recognizes juniors and seniors who have reached the highest levels of academic achievement among their peers.

The Cum Laude Society comprises some of the finest independent schools in the United States. In District II members include: Episcopal Academy, Moravian, The Hill School, Mercersburg, Germantown Academy, Peddie, Blair, and Lawrenceville. Membership in Cum Laude is based upon academic achievement and denotes a student and a school with a demonstrated commitment to academic excellence.

The Cum Laude Society mission recognizes academic achievement in secondary schools for the purpose of promoting excellence (Areté), justice (Diké) and honor (Timé).

Through June 2012, Perkiomen continued to induct students into the Amantes Scientia chapter of the National Honor Society based on academic record and evaluation of their leadership, service and character by a faculty committee. After June 2012, the Amantes Scientia chapter became inactive. Students who were inducted into NHS will remain members regardless of chapter activity. Perkiomen School will continue to honor students who demonstrate outstanding leadership, service and character through the awarding of appropriate prizes. Subsequently, the students with the highest academic achievements will be recognized by induction into the Cum Laude Society.
