Students inducted to the Cum Laude Society have demonstrated excellence in their academic work, good character, honor and integrity in all aspects of their school life. Julieta Zesiger, Chair of the Science Department, is president of the Casady Cum Laude Chapter.
 
The Cum Laude Society is an international academic fraternity dedicated to honoring scholastic achievement in secondary schools. The founders of the society modeled Cum Laude after Phi Beta Kappa. The society's motto is "Excellence, Justice, Honor." Casady's chapter began in 1961.
 
At Casady, the primary criteria for election has been the quality of the curriculum the candidate has chosen and the number and enthusiasm of nominations made on behalf of the individual student by the Upper Division faculty and current Cum Laude student members. Each year, the selection committee asks the faculty and current members to nominate students who have demonstrated excellence in their academic work, good character, honor, and integrity in all aspects of their school life.
