Attention 7th grade parents!
We have some exciting news about the Jack Cooke Young Scholarship Program. The Cooke Young Scholars Program is a selective five-year, pre-college scholarship for high performing 7th grade students with financial need. Educational advisers help Cooke Young Scholars maximize the high school experience and prepare to thrive at the nation’s top-performing colleges. Please visit the AIG website for more details.
Parents, a reminder that if you have a sibling who you wish to attend our school, the sibling must be entered into the DPS magnet lottery and linked to the current student in the online lottery application. Siblings are only eligible for priority seating if SCS is first choice in the lottery selection and if the sibling resides at the same address as the current student. A seat must be available in the grade applied for to receive priority seating. The DPS magnet lottery can be accessed online at https://www.dpsnc.net/ and the deadline is January 31, 2019 at 5:00pm. Please contact our Magnet Coordinator, Dr. Rita Rathbone with questions related to sibling priority seating.
