    Please click here for the Application.

    The Academic Block program at Dublin High School is designed to recognize and reward those students who demonstrate and maintain academic excellence in the classroom.

    Students interested in obtaining an Academic Block or Honor Pin must qualify and submit an application, much like the athlete that must try out and participate in a sport to receive an Athletic Block.


    To qualify for an Academic Block:

    1.   Earn a 3.5 weighted GPA or higher for three (3) consecutive semesters.


    Earn a 3.5 weighted GPA or higher for five (5) nonconsecutive semesters.

    2.   Submit a one-time application.

    3.   Submit an unofficial transcript highlighting those 3 consecutive or 5 non-consecutive semestral GPAs in which a 3.5 or higher weighted GPA is earned***    

    *** Once grades have posted, you can print your own unofficial transcript in the portal under “Reports” in Infinite Campus.

    4.   Attach a voluntary donation of $10 (cash or check written to DHS) to help defray the cost of the Academic Awards Program.  Your contribution would be greatly appreciated.


    To qualify for an Honor Pin:

    1.   Earn a 3.5 weighted GPA or higher for 1 additional semester after having earned the Academic Block.  This is the final award in the program.

    2.   Submit an application.

    3.   Submit an unofficial transcript highlighting the additional semestral GPA in which a 3.5 or higher weighted GPA is earned and mark it “PIN”***

    4.   Attach a voluntary donation of $10 (cash or check written to DHS) to help defray the cost of the Academic Awards Program.  Your contribution would be greatly appreciated.


    The Academic Blocks and Honor Pins will be awarded in the month of March of each school year. Students may submit applications for Academic Blocks and Honor Pins during the months of October and February. Announcements will be made in the PFSO newsletter and in weekly announcements reminding students that applications are due. In order to be included in the current year Academic Awards Ceremony students must submit their application prior to the deadline in February.

    Transfer students will be recognized for the equivalent academic work earned at another school and will be eligible for a DHS Academic Block after having earned a 3.5 or higher weighted GPA after one full semester in attendance at DHS.


    Note: Student recipients will get a pass in class to go to the Old Gym for the informal awards in March.

    California Scholarship Federation (CSF)

    The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) emphasizes high standards of scholarship and community service for California high school students. Founded in 1921, the California Scholarship Federation is the oldest scholarship institution in the state of California.

    CSF Membership is based on scholarship and is gained after qualifying grades are earned each semester. In order to become a member, the student must submit an application each semester the student is eligible. A point system specified in the CSF State By-Laws establishes the membership requirements.  To secure eligibility for CSF membership, a student must earn sufficient points from pre-approved course lists.  The majority of the required membership points must come from University of California accepted course work.  Students must also participate in four community service events with one being during their senior year to be eligible for Life Membership.  There are many local community service projects arranged through CSF.

    Life Membership (Sealbearer) is achieved by qualifying four or more semesters in the last three years of high school, (one semester must be in your senior year) and earns the CSF Gold Seal on diplomas and transcripts. Students must be active with CSF and participate in four community service projects during the high school years, with one being during senior year. These students graduate in white robes and are also eligible to be nominated by the chapter adviser for the Seymour Memorial Awards.

    More detailed information on membership can be found in the CSF Handbook.

    CSF Meetings will take place during lunch (12:30 pm) on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the Sports Complex.
