Purpose: To recognize scholar-athletes who have honored Crean Lutheran’s mission of Proclaiming Jesus Christ through Excellence in Education by achieving and maintaining academic excellence while also competing in one or more sports.
Season Recognition for Scholar Athletes: At individual sports banquets, student-athletes (grades 9-12) who have maintained at minimum a 3.85 total weighted cumulative GPA during the two grading periods during the season will be recognized by their coaches with the Scholar-Athlete award.
Senior Breakfast & Graduation Recognition for Scholar Athletes: To qualify for recognition for both the Senior Scholar-Athlete Breakfast and Graduation Recognition, the senior student-athlete must have earned at least a weighted academic GPA of 3.85 to gain Cum Laude Status. They must have participated in a minimum of two subsequent years, inclusive of the student’s senior year, on the roster of at least one athletic team and have been held accountable for all required team activities. Prior to graduation, Cum Laude student-athletes will receive a medal that they may proudly wear during the ceremony.
