Esperanza High School is proud to offer our Distinguished Scholars Program, an academically rigorous program that recognizes students who take the most challenging courses offered on our campus. The students who complete the requirements of this program position themselves to have the best opportunity for admission to the most prestigious and competitive universities nationwide. Distinguished Scholars earn yearly recognition, including a student luncheon and an evening award ceremony for families. Upon graduation, Distinguished Scholars are honored with front row seating at graduation, a unique cap and gown, and a special diploma commemorating this outstanding accomplishment. For more information please see the "Distinguished Scholars & AP Night Presentation" linked below.
Note: Please do not submit applications over summer before freshman year. If your student did not get the application in on time they will have the opportunity to reapply after their first semester based on their first semester grades at EHS.
