Hoban Purchase Prize

The Hoban Purchase Prize is a recognition program to honor and display the most outstanding work of Hoban art students. Their work is purchased, framed and displayed on the walls throughout the school. From all the student artwork produced each year, the fine arts department faculty selects the top 10 pieces. These works are shared with the faculty and staff so that they can vote on their favorite artworks. The works are anonymous so that the pieces would be judged solely on artistic merit. 

Honor for Academic Excellence

The Education Committee of the board of directors established the Honor for Academic Excellence (formerly the Academic Hall of Honor) in 1991 to recognize the academic achievements of Hoban graduates. It serves several purposes:

  • To symbolize the school’s commitment to academics.
  • To motivate students to their highest levels of achievement, both in the classroom and on college entrance examinations.
  • To recognize academic excellence among individual students.
  • To instill a sense of tradition among the classes of graduates of the school.
  • To assist in recruiting efforts.

To earn the honor, a student must:

  • Maintain a 3.80 grade point average
  • Score at the 98th percentile nationally on the SAT or the ACT
  • Graduate from Hoban after attending for four years

Past Honorees

 

Monsignor Richard A. Dowed School Spirit Awards 

The highest award given by Hoban, the Monsignor Richard A. Dowed School Spirit Award singles out students who have made outstanding contributions of their time, effort and talent to the Hoban community and to the activities connected with the school. Faculty committees select students who have best exemplified the ideals of Christian service, leadership and spirit. 

Each year one student from each grade level is selected for the award. An individual may receive the award more than once. The awards are announced at the Spring Awards Night in May.

The award dates back to 1957 and is named after the late pastor of nearby Annunciation Church (now Visitation of Mary), who convinced Archbishop Edward Hoban of the need for a new Catholic high school for boys in Akron and acquired the land that was to become its campus.

 



Winners of the Monsignor Dowed Award for 2018-19 are senior Abby Griffith, junior Dominic DiMascio, sophomore Gavin Morrison and freshman Andrew Hardman.

 

Past recipients


 

National Honor Society

Seat of Wisdom Chapter

The purposes of Hoban's Seat of Wisdom Chapter of the National Honor Society are to honor outstanding students for their achievements and to provide service to both school and community. 

To be a member, a student must have an accumulative grade point average of 3.750 after five consecutive semesters and fill out a student profile sheet. A faculty selection committee then reviews students' scholarship, leadership, character and service before offering students membership in NHS. The student must be able to demonstrate leadership and service.

Projects of the National Honor Society include:

  • Sale of the KidStuff Coupon Book and App 
  • The Red Cross Blood Drive
  • The Adopt-a-Family for Christmas project
  • The tutoring program
  • Acme Fresh Market's Community Cash Back Program
  • Christmas tree wrapping at the Children's Hospital Holiday Tree Festival.
  • Coupon books

Hoban's chapter is affiliated with the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Its faculty coadvisers are Mrs. Taylor Ball and Mrs. Laura Siplivy.

2019 Induction: A total of 62 students–57 juniors and five seniors--were inducted into Hoban's Seat of Wisdom chapter of the National Honor Society on May 12, 2019, in Holy Cross Chapel. The program began with an invocation given by junior Veronica McDowell and a welcome by Mrs. Laura Siplivy, NHS co-adviser. Student speakers on the NHS attributes were junior Alec Haas on Scholarship, senior Lauren Patterson on Service, junior Madeline Owen on Leadership and senior George Hudak on Character. Following a candle lighting ceremony, the new inductees recited the NHS membership pledge. After final remarks by Dr. Emily Ramos, principal, there was a reception in Moreau Ministry Hall.

Honor Roll

To be listed on the honor roll each quarter, a student must have a 3.00 grade-point average, with no grade lower than C-minus. If a student has a 3.00 GPA and a grade lower than C-minus, the student may appeal to the Academic Review Board. No student may be included on the honor roll until any incomplete grade (I) has been made up. 

There are three honor roll classifications: 

  • Highest Honors: 3.85 to 4.83
  • High Honors: 3.50 to 3.84
  • Honors: 3.00 to 3.49

The honor roll is published at the end of each of the first three grading periods. Students on the honor roll for the first three quarters qualify for a Scholastic Honor Award presented at the Honors Assembly in May.
