The Scholars’ Society is a tradition at North Nova which was created to honour those students who achieve a high level of academic success. Students who have a cumulative average of 90 per cent over their three years at NNEC have their names inscribed on the Scholars’ Society wall at North Nova and have had their names entered into a random draw for a $1000 bursary from Scotiabank, the presenting sponsor. The 2016 winner is Naomi Zentner.

The Governor General Medal, established in 1873, recognizes students who have achieved the highest academic average in all Grade 11 and 12 courses. The 2016 academic medal was presented to Nicole Corkum.

The Queen Elizabeth II Medal is awarded to the student who has demonstrated superior academic achievement in grades 10, 11 and 12 and maintained an outstanding record in school and community involvement.  This year’s recipient was Luke Henderson.
Erin Washburn received the Valedictorian Medal.
