St. Margaret’s Inducts 24 Into Prestigious Cum Laude Society

St. Margaret’s inducted 14 seniors and 10 juniors into the Cum Laude Society, a prestigious honor which recognizes and celebrates academic achievement. The new Tartan inductees join 10 current seniors inducted in 2019 as juniors.
The inductees were honored during the Upper School Awards Ceremony, which took place remotely in a Zoom presentation. They were presented by Upper School teacher and Cum Laude Chapter President Rocky Parker.
The Cum Laude Society was founded in 1906 and identifies academic achievement through its motto: Areté (excellence), Diké (justice), Timé (honor). Chapters are established in schools of superior academic quality, and St. Margaret’s is one of just 382 chapters of the Cum Laude Society around the world and the only one in Orange County.
The 24 new inductees join more than 300 St. Margaret’s students who have been inducted since 1986.

The Cum Laude Society limits membership to 20 percent of a school’s senior class, with only 10 percent eligible for induction as juniors. In addition to academic achievement, students must demonstrate good character, honor and integrity.
