Year End Awards

Super Scholar

Super Scholar is an incentive for our grammar students to learn all of the memory work.  Awards will be given to those who have successfully memorized each subject area. Students may choose all or one or more subjects to work toward.  The awards are as follows for mastery of subjects:

One  – Spectacular Specialist
Two – Whiz Kid
Three – Terrific Thinker
Four – Academic Athlete
Five – Extraordinary Expert
Six – Incredible Intellectual
Seven – Emerging Einstein
Eight –Super Scholar

Truth, Goodness and Beauty 

Truth, Goodness and Beauty Awards can be earned in addition or separately from super scholar. This 3 part award consists of: Saints, Music and Art. Each individual award earns a certificate with the title as indicated. If all 3 titles are earned the scholar earns the title of Truth, Goodness and Beauty and the director can offer a special medal or trophy.  Titles for each:

Saints -Transcendent Treasure
Music—Jazzy Jewel
Art—Competent Craftsman

Parents will work with their student at home and confirm they are ready to be evaluated at year’s end. The Director will quiz the student with just the parent present. (Parents are there for support and witness but must remain quiet.) The Director will randomly quiz the child with the beginning portion of the memory work or asking about a topic.

For example:

Director:  “Tell me about the area of a rectangle.”

Student:  “The area of a rectangle equals length times width.”

Director:  “Finish this statement: The Civil Rights movement started in…” and the child will respond with the entire history statement.​ OR Tell me about the Civil Rights Movement.”

Once the Director is satisfied the child indeed has achieved the award, achievements and prizes will be celebrated and awarded at our Year End Showcase!
