Become LUOA’s FIRST EVER Valedictorian and Salutatorian

Are you a current Senior? Starting THIS year, LUOA is selecting two students to represent LUOA as our school’s FIRST EVER Valedictorian and Salutatorian!

In keeping with our mission to train students to become Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to impact the world —  we are selecting two students who excel in 5 Key Areas that we believe make up the whole student to represent LUOA as Valedictorian and Salutatorian:

  • Academics
  • Spiritual Growth and Maturity
  • Community Service Involvement
  • School Involvement (Extracurricular Activities)
  • Commitment to the Vision and Mission of LUOA

The Valedictorian and Salutatorian will have an opportunity to address the LUOA Senior Class as a part of May 2023’s Commencement Activities and will receive an award and recognition as a part of the ceremony!

Community Service Award

The Leadership and the Administration of LUOA will select Students each academic year who have shown excellence in Community Service to highlight the impact they have made through Community Service. As a part of May 2023’s Commencement Activities, each student will receive an award and recognition and we will share their work via video.

Who is eligible to graduate?

In order for a student to qualify for participation in the graduation ceremonies, they must be considered a full-time senior by February 1 of the graduating year. For example, a student who is looking to participate in LUOA’s May 2023 commencement exercises must be considered a full-time senior by February 1, 2023. Students and parents may contact our academic advising team in order to determine if they are eligible to participate.

A Degree Completion fee of $75 will be added to your account. This fee also applies to students who don’t plan on attending Commencement. This fee covers things such as your diploma, diploma covers, shipping costs, transcripts, etc., and will need to be paid in addition to any outstanding account balance prior to you receiving your Diploma or final transcript.
