Every year, the Superintendent’s Scholars Awards program honors Polk County Public Schools’ top high school seniors for their outstanding achievements.

To qualify as a Superintendent’s Scholar, graduating seniors must have earned a 3.8 weighted GPA or higher by their seventh semester.

These students have proven they have what it takes to excel in the classroom and beyond. To mark this achievement, each recognized senior will receive a medallion to be worn at graduation.

PCPS is immensely proud of our Superintendent’s Scholars Award recipients. They have worked incredibly hard, dedicated themselves to the pursuit of academic excellence, and will graduate at the top of their classes.

These students have achieved great things, and we celebrate that even greater things are yet to come!
