Allen Academy News Stories
Some of our Upper School students recently had the opportunity to attend the ISAS Fine Arts Festival held in Austin, TX. This was an incredible experience that allowed them to not only share their own performances and pieces, but to attend workshops and master classes and learn from talented faculty and peers from other ISAS schools. As an annual event, our faculty and students are already looking forward to next year's ISAS Fine Arts Festival!
Thank you so much to all of the grandparents, friends, and family members who joined us for Grandparents Day. Our PS and LS students have been hard at work for the last few months, and we love having the opportunity to welcome you to campus, share the results of their hard work, and celebrate the lasting impact each of you have on our students!
Congratulations to these five seniors elected to membership in the inaugural class of the Allen Academy Chapter of the Cum Laude Society: Leo T., Lara Z., Michaela R., Kendall K., and Sam D.
This is an incredibly prestigious honor. Established in 1906 as the secondary school equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa, the country's oldest collegiate honor society, The Cum Laude Society honors academic excellence and superior scholarship among its nearly 400 member schools. Membership in this academic organization is limited to 20 percent of the Senior Class. Allen Academy is proud to induct five members of the Class of 2019 into this prestigious society.
Allen Academy students must meet each of the following criteria to be considered for election: maintain at least an A average, carry a full college preparatory course load that includes the most rigorous courses offered, have excellent SAT/ACT scores, and receive enough votes from electing members of the Allen Academy Chapter of The Cum Laude Society. However, fulfillment of these requirements does not guarantee membership. The Society emphasizes more than academic grades and standardized test scores. Instead, it recognizes individuals who—in all areas of their lives—love to learn, share their knowledge with others, and demonstrate scholarship, honor, integrity, leadership, involvement, and outstanding character. The Society also hopes that all of its members will continue their cooperative and selfless pursuit of knowledge while serving as lifelong examples of the Cum Laude Society motto: Aréte (Excellence), Diké (Justice), Timé (Honor).
Congratulations and well done, Rams!

Congratulations to the newest National Honor Society inductees from Allen Academy!
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
