How Lafayette Academy Can Help Your Children Become Honor Students

Honors courses are offered for advanced students who consistently show academic aptitude that exceeds their grade level. And as teachers and directors of honors programs know, honors students are developed, not discovered. In other words, is becoming an honors student, like most other types of success, is not an inborn trait but primarily a personal quality that takes time and effort to cultivate.

Are Honors or AP Courses Worth Taking?

Honors and AP courses are worth the extra effort they require because participating in honors-level programs in high school plainly reveals students’ academic “chops” to the colleges and universities they apply for. In fact, rigor is one of the most important factors in college admissions. Honors classes progress at a faster pace and deal with course material in greater depth than do regular classes. So, excelling in high school honors classes will transform a student’s entire academic career, allowing him or her to be more easily accepted into a top-notch college or university. There, they can skip entry-level and general-education classes and begin pursuing their studies at a more advanced level.

Most colleges and universities in the United States give college credit and/or advanced placement to students with outstanding grades in high school honors classes. In this way, graduation requirements can be completed early and the journey to a successful career or further studies in graduate school or a professional school can be started sooner.

Master Math and Strategic Reading Foster Future Honors Students

Children who start in our Master Math and Strategic Reading programs while in elementary or middle school receive an immense boost toward honors courses in high school. These students acquire the most important academic fundamentals and get accustomed to high achievement. Students who take honors classes receive a better education and graduate with higher grade-point averages. This in turn produces greater self-esteem and an improved likelihood of being accepted into the college of their choice.

Our Strategic Reading and Master Math programs will improve all elementary and middle school students’ odds of being eligible for honors classes once they reach high school. So, let our experienced and caring tutors help your child do well in their classes. That way, they can become the honors students they want to be and set themselves up for future success.
