NOVA offers honors classes to highly motivated students who seek a challenging academic experience. Through a variety of teaching methods, students learn to think broadly and independently about the material covered. Qualified students may register for individual honors courses or the Honors Core Curriculum, consisting of 18 to 21 credits in English, humanities or fine arts, social or behavioral sciences, natural sciences or math, and honors seminar. Completing the Honors Core Curriculum earns special designation on the student’s transcript and diploma.
