About Junior Class Achievement Awards

The Sequoia PTSA started the tradition of giving awards to juniors in 2011 so they can include the award on college applications. Also, juniors who apply will have a head start on their college applications since this scholarship application requires input from Naviance and mimics the University of California application prompts. Most importantly, we want to recognize those students who are making Sequoia High School and their surrounding community a better place. We hope the prestige of winning this award will help them pursue their dreams and provide some extra money for continuing their education. This year multiple awards of at least $250 to offer. Awards are granted in these categories:

  • Academic Success – A student with a strong academic record or evidence of consistent improvement
  • Community Service – A student who has worked to improve the school or community
  • Resilience – A student who has overcome personal challenges in achieving academic success, pursuing community service, or making the Sequoia community better.
