Elder Honors Program

The Honors Program and Honors Program Plus are designed for the academically gifted students of Elder High School. Rigorous coursework in our highest levels of classes, combined with various leadership and philanthropic opportunities, are the cornerstones of these two prestigious programs.

Students in Elder's Honors Program and Honors Program Plus will be provided individualized academic- and career-focused guidance and opportunities. They will also be involved in and plan service projects within the local community and represent Elder at specific functions.

Consideration for admittance into either program is based on a student's score on his High School Entrance & Placement Test and a review of his completed application. For more specific information about our two-tiered Honors Program, please click on the buttons below:
