Honors/Advanced Placement Pathway

The Honors/AP Pathway requires learners to complete 26 credits.  The credits come from the Honors and/or Advanced Placement core courses at Orion High School.  World Languages are required (2 credits), and those are designated as Honor Courses at Orion.  Elective courses taken through Endorsement Areas, are not designated as Honors. 

Learners graduating with the 26 credits required in the Honors/AP curriculum will also qualify as Distinguished Achievement Graduates. 

Distinguished Level of Achievement

Learners may graduate Orion High School with a designation called Distinguished Level of Achievement.  A learner who earns this distinction, must meet the following criteria:

  • Complete all of the requirements from the Graduation Plan;
  • Complete a comprehensive Senior Project
  • Complete the requirements for the AP/Honors Pathway or the Advanced International Studies Pathway.
  • Must have entered Orion High School before beginning the Senior level

The Distinguished Level of Achievement is the highest honor bestowed on a graduate of Orion High School.
