Clinton High School granted international Phi Theta Kappa charter

Phi Theta Kappa Clinton High School is the first high school in the continental United States to be granted a charter from the international academic honor society Phi Theta Kappa.


Clinton High School’s Principal Brett Robinson said the newly granted charter of Phi Theta Kappa is a great opportunity for the students of Clinton High School


“The work being done at Clinton High School and throughout the Clinton Public School District has always been on the cutting edge,” Robinson said. “We are proud to continue leading the way in education, not only in the state of Mississippi but nationally.”


Students must meet certain academic requirements in order to be granted membership into Clinton High School’s Beta Psi Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.


Students must earn a minimum of 12 college hours and maintain at least a 3.5 GPA in those hours.


Students can also qualify by completing a set amount of seat time and certifications in one of the many Career and Technical Education programs available at CHS.


“This is a great honor for the Clinton Public School District and a great opportunity for the students at Clinton High School,” Assistant Principal Dr. Brock Ratcliff said.


“Our partnership with Phi Theta Kappa opens the doors to more scholarships, more academic advancements and a greater network of career possibilities for over half of the student body who already participate in our dual enrollment courses and CTE programs.”


Student induction into Phi Theta Kappa will begin the spring of 2021.
