Who: DPS High School Students (grades 9-12) and any middle school students currently enrolled in Common Core Math I.
When and Where: The academy program will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for students. The Academy will be held at Durham School of the Arts, located at 401 North Duke Street. The dates for the spring 2014 Fall EOC Saturday Academy are: December 6 and 13, 2014, and January 3 and 10, 2015.
Logistics: All DPS students who are currently enrolled in Biology, Foundations of Math I/Common Core Math I, and English II are invited to participate in the program since everyone must take the EOC exam.
