MODIFICATIONS TO CSF APPLICATIONS 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR

CoVid and the 4x4 schedule have presented several challenges in executing CSF this year. In the interest of recognizing these challenging times, encouraging resiliency, and honoring academic achievement the following is being implemented:

FOR EVERYONE: The application completed in Feb/March will be not be factored into membership. Student's schedules were inconsistent and imbalanced making qualification for CSF for many students impossible and unfair. Your dues paid will count for the entire year. 

SENIORS: Submit SENIOR CSF APPLICATION using Q1, Q2, Q3 grades and points by May 7th. This application will go live on Monday 4/19. From that information Seniors will be notified where they are at in regards to graduation awards.

CSF SENIOR APPLICATION 

DUE 5/7

JUNIORS & SOPHOMORES: Submit your CSF application in the FALL OF 2021 using your Q1-Q4 grades and it will count as TWO semesters of membership for the 2020-2021 school year. So this means you are fine if you did not remember to submit an application in Feb/March. Just keep an eye out for the application window in September 2021. 

FRESHMEN: Submit your CSF application in the FALL OF 2021 using Q1-Q4 grades and it will count as ONE semester of membership for the 2020-2021 school year. Freshmen, you weren't allowed to apply in the fall because they only have Davidson grades so I am only going to count one semester of membership for them like I would in the normal world. 

PARENTS: PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE YOUR STUDENT'S APPLICATION OR JOIN THE REMIND! 

Students will be required to complete several forms throughout their educational and professional career. Please allow them to attempt this process themselves and do not deprive them of this learning opportunity. If they are having trouble they may attend my office hours for direct assistance. In addition our Remind has a limit of 150 members and cannot accommodate parents and students. Keeping track of meetings and deadlines is also an invaluable lesson for students to practice. 

SENIORS, remember you must be a member for at least 4 semesters (one being in your Senior year) to qualify for Life Membership and 6 semesters (not including your Freshmen year) for Life Membership 100%. 

FRESHMEN, you are not eligible to join CSF for the Fall semester but are in the Spring. 

There is enrollment each semester and all are welcome to attend to get more information to see if they qualify. Don't miss a chance to be a part of CSF a tradition at San Rafael High School since 1924!

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The California Scholarship Federation is one of the oldest Honor Societies at the high school level. C.S.F., founded in 1921, emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California high school students. 

Membership is based on a grade and point system for each semester, with enrollment commencing each term. Grading and point scale is listed on the application, along with approved courses to determine eligibility. 

***Below requirements are based on our pre-Covid schedule, view Spring 2021 PPT for modified pt distribution***

  • Only 5 courses may be used for application (please reference the course list in the file cabinet)
  • Each A is worth 3 points
  • Each B is worth 1 point
  • D’s or F’s render candidate ineligible 
  • Non-academic subjects such as P.E. and Teacher’s Assistant are not eligible for application.
  • Each student must have a minimum of 10 points to qualify. 
  • Freshmen are not eligible for membership until the second semester of their Freshmen year.
  • Members must also complete at least five hours of community service each semester

Please view the application for more information. Enrollment is advertised and open at the beginning of each semester in the bulletin, This Week @SR, and outside of Mrs. Ayoob’s classroom.

Benefits

C.S.F. provided numerous benefits. Members are working with students who have similar interests and participate in club and volunteer activities that give back to the San Rafael community. They will be a part of a 95 year old, respected, non-profit organization, which is older than the National Honor Society and the Southern Academic Fraternities. College admissions officers note a student’s membership in C.S.F. Students who maintain membership for a minimum of four terms in the last three years of high school (one of which must be using grades from their SENIOR year) are awarded Life Time Membership.
