The academic ring is an honor bestowed upon senior students at Chesterton High School who have met a rigid set of academic and co-curricular criteria. The ring resulted from a year of study by a faculty, parent and student committee. The idea of the ring is to recognize outstanding achievement by CHS students and to acknowledge their "renaissance" education.

The criterion for the ring is based on a 15-point scale. In order to earn the ring a student must accumulate 14 points or more and earn a cumulative 4.3 GPA by the 7th semester. It is the committee's desire to recognize as many students as possible; however, the academic ring is intended to promote a totally well rounded student who has met a high level of academic criteria.

Points for the academic ring are determined as follows: 1 point for every semester on Principal's Honor Roll (7 points possible); 1 point for National Honor Society membership; 1 point for co-curricular participation each year (4 points possible); 1 point for 40 credits earned at seventh semester; 1 point for no grade below a "B" (seven semesters); 1 point for earning a 4.3 grade point average for all seven semesters.
