‘The Masters’ To Celebrate Academic Achievement


Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville announced a new academic recognition program called “The Masters.” This program will promote and celebrate academic achievement by recognizing those students who have obtained mastery in eight or more New York State Regents examinations. New York State has determined that mastery is achieved when a student successfully scores an 85 percent or more on a Regents examination.The road to the masters will begin in freshman year when students take their first Regents examinations and will end with the awarding of the Holy Trinity Masters Pin in senior year. At the beginning of sophomore year those students who have achieved mastery in two Regents exams will receive a letter declaring them an apprentice on the road to the masters. Juniors will receive a certificate at the beginning of their third year noting that they are now journeymen, having achieved mastery in at least five Regents examinations. The final phase begins in senior year when those students who have achieved mastery in at least eight Regents examinations will be awarded the Holy Trinity Diocesan High School masters pin.

Vice Principal Kathleen Moran is very excited about this program. “The greatest achievement for our students is receiving a Holy Trinity Diocesan High School diploma after four years of a rigorous academic program. As a college preparatory school, we follow the educational mandates of New York State, providing our students with the opportunity to earn a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation,” said Moran. “This program will allow our students to track their success and be publicly recognized for their achievements as they move towards graduation.”
