At CCDS, students are inducted into the society on the basis of their grade point averages, starting at the beginning of sophomore year. For junior inductees, the school takes into account their sophomore and junior GPAs. For seniors, sophomore, junior and first-semester senior GPAs are considered.

Ten percent of a given class is inducted at the end of their junior year at the awards day in June. An additional 10% of the class is inducted at an assembly in February. All inductees of a given class are honored at a dinner in March, where they receive their Cum Laude pins.
