Nichols welcomed 24 seniors into this year's Cum Laude Society. Nichols, in 1918, was the thirteenth school to be admitted to membership in the Cum Laude Society.
At Nichols, criteria for admission of students to the Cum Laude Society is based on: academic excellence, scholarship and love of learning, consistency in performance across the four years with special attention to achievement in grades 11 and 12, degree of difficulty in course load, character, honor, and integrity in all aspects of school life.
Dan Rosenblum, Upper School Science faculty, addressed the inductees and remarked, "The distinguished record you have made at the school has won each of you membership in the Cum Laude Society. The Society is a fellowship of scholars whose purpose is to recognize excellence in academic work. As you pursue you education, it is our hope that you will accept the honor of membership of this society as a responsibility to make some contribution to the on-going search for greater understanding of humanity and of society, and that you will always cherish the love of should learning."
