Once per semester the school honors those students who have achieved distinction in their studies. The school strongly believes that recognition of the student's accomplishments is a key component of their success. Accordingly the school awards the following honors based upon their grade point averages:
3.0-3.49 GPA Honorable Mention
3.5-3.99 GPA HONOR ROLL
4.0 GPA and above PRINCIPAL'S LIST
Student of the Month
Monthly every COA MS teacher gets to nominate student of the month. These students are recognized during school wide assemblies. The day after the assembly they get to enjoy a pizza lunch with the principal.
