What is the SPCC Pre-Honors Program?
Pre-Honors is an exciting program that gives students the opportunity to explore their interests and collaborate on projects focused on research and scholarship.
Students work as a group to decide on a project, such as creating a piece of art, producing a film, performing in a play, designing an escape room, or volunteering for community service. The group’s work is then presented at an annual symposium to celebrate student accomplishments.
Students who complete the Pre-Honors project also receive a pin and certificate of achievement to acknowledge their work.
