The Steering Committee defines high achieving students as individuals who demonstrate exceptional performance in academic (e.g. high GPA, awards/honors/distinctions) as well as complex experiential pursuits (e.g. Honors program, community-based, leadership, research, internships, creative, political, athletic), and/or display certain personal qualities (e.g. intrinsic motivation, self-directed, resourceful, intellectually curious, goal-oriented, diversity of interests, love of learning).  Ongoing discussions focus on identifying and recruiting high achieving students of diverse backgrounds, administering honors programs, teaching high-achieving students, developing enriched curricular opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom, helping students manage their mental, physical,  and social wellbeing, and advising strategies to use when interacting with this student population.
