Delta Epsilon Phi is an honor society specifically for high school students enrolled in German language classes. To be eligible for participation, students must be enrolled in German 3, German 4 or Advanced Placement German; have a minimum average GPA of 3.6 in German classes and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale); and no disciplinary record.
Each school year, active members of Delta Epsilon Phi must complete 10 experience or service hours, which may be earned through German Club activities, fundraisers, extra-cultural experiences, tutoring and more. Active members are eligible for state and national awards, scholarships, travel stipends and contests.
The goal of Delta Epsilon Phi, which is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German, is to recognize high school achievement in German and to promote interest in the study of the German language and culture.
