Philosophy

 The Immaculate Heart of Mary Honors (IHM) Program is a dual enrollment program that allows exceptional students to participate in a curriculum that offers courses which are broader in scope and are more demanding than the college preparatory curriculum. Students will be able to practice critical thinking and analytical skills that will aid them in developing their potential. The Immaculate Heart of Mary Honors Program will challenge outstanding students with a demanding education that stresses independent work and intense engagement with the faculty and other Honors students both in and out of the classroom.


Students completing the program will be awarded a diploma “with distinction.” Students graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 to 3.59 will be awarded a distinction of “Cum Laude,” students graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 3.60 to 3.79 will be awarded a distinction of “Magna Cum Laude”, while students graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 3:80 and higher will be awarded a distinction of “Summa Cum Laude.”
