What is Tech Honors?  If you're asking this question, start here.

Honors is an academic program whose mission is to provide smaller, in-depth classes and co-curricular activities that help intellectually ready students develop their strengths through research, leadership, civic engagement and service, personal growth, team-building, and greater cultural understanding.

Tech Honors is about being more: a scholar who is openminded, a citizen of the world, a creative problem-solver.

Tech Honors is for students who have the initiative, intellectual drive, and creative thinking skills to explore and inquire.

It's not just about what looks good on a resume:

Honors means serving the world more deeply through a commitment to integrating critical thinking, servant leadership, and continued growth.

Learning how to ask more penetrating questions in all aspects of life--and doing so with a supportive community of thinkers--is at the heart of the Honors experience.
