Superintendent Scholars



Canyon ISD proudly recognizes outstanding achievement in rigorous academic courses for students attending Canyon and Randall high schools through the Superintendent Scholars program.



To qualify as a Superintendent Scholar as student must:

·         Have a cumulative GPA of 90.00 or better (89.99 will not qualify)

·         Be currently enrolled in the 9th through 12th grade in at least four courses listed as a Superintendent Scholar course.

·         Earn a semester average of 95 or above in at least four qualifying Superintendent Scholar courses taken at the high school level in either the first semester or second semester.

·         Superintendent Scholar courses will include:

1.    Courses that satisfy the required Math, Science, English Language Arts and Social Studies 4X4 credits on the Recommended and Distinguished Graduation Plan

2.    Languages other than English

·         If a student is enrolled in a qualifying WTAMU PUP course or qualifying Texas Virtual School Network course, the student is responsible for supplying an official grade report from WTAMU or from the provider of the TxVSN course.   Grades are due in the office of the Secretary of the Superintendent by April 18, 2014

·         Pre-AP and AP courses will be weighted as outlined in the Canyon ISD Course Bulletin.

·         Second Semester averages will be determined at the conclusion of the 5th six-weeks.


Superintendent Scholars will be recognized in the evening on the first Monday in May.  There will be a ceremony and reception for the honorees and their parents hosted by the superintendent with the board of trustees as invited guests.
