Student Awards at WCI

WCI’s point system is based on excellence in the three “A’s” – Academics, Athletics and Activities (including musical, creative and performing arts and clubs). Students may earn a letter (a “W”) in each of these three areas.

The Award of Honour is presented to the rare outstanding student who earns all three W’s (white, red and blue). It is WCI’s highest earned honour.

In order to earn a letter in Academics, Athletics or Activities a student must meet the following criteria:

4 Years at WCI

White W– Academics: 3 or more years of High Honours (80% or higher average based on June report)*

Blue W– Activities: 8 points (with a maximum of 3 points per year). Most clubs and groups count for one point.

Red W– Athletics: 12 points or 4 years on the same team. Most teams count for two points.
