Hawai‘i P-20’s latest College and Career Readiness Indicators Report (CCRI) for the Class of 2018 shows that more than one fourth of the graduates statewide earned a Hawai‘i State Department of Education’s (DOE) Honors Recognition Certificate, completing a rigorous course of study to prepare them for college and career. To receive an Honors Recognition Certificate, students must meet all of the requirements for a Hawai‘i High School Diploma with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and complete additional, rigorous requirements such as earning additional credits in math and science and meeting or exceeding performance-based assessments.
The CCRI reports show that the collaboration between the University of Hawai‘i System (UH) and DOE to strengthen the education pipeline is yielding positive results. Eighteen percent of students in the Class of 2018 enrolled in college courses while in high school, an increase of 12 percentage points from the Class of 2013, and more than half of these students earned at least six college credits, saving on future college costs.
