Renaissance is a nation-wide program designed to motivate and encourage students by rewarding academic excellence. The Renaissance program at Monterey Trail High School aims at creating and maintaining a culture in which academic achievement has the same prestige as athletic or artistic achievement. Renaissance employs similar motivational practices to those used in the business world. By providing tangible and visible incentives and rewards to students who improve their level of performance and to those who maintain high levels of achievement, Renaissance re-enforces the behavior that schools promote.

There are three levels of rewards:

Platinum - 4.0 or better GPA
Gold - 3.0 or better GPA
Silver - 0.5 or better GPA improvement

Renaissance is a partnership between businesses, community leaders, and education, bringing ideas and people together in order to find ways for students to experience the joy of learning. The rewards at each level are shown below.

Platinum (4.0+ GPA) Gold (3.0+ GPA)  Silver (0.5 GPA improvement)
