Salisbury High initiates Academy of Science and Math

Salisbury High School will initiate the Academy of Science and Math with a summer program during July.
The academy is open to rising seventh-, eighth- and ninth-graders who live in Rowan County and enjoy challenges presented by the advanced study of science and math. To qualify, a student must have a grade of B or higher in science and math or have a recommendation from the school’s guidance counselor or principal.
The program will run 8 a.m.-12:15 p.m. two weeks in July. There is no charge. Transportation will not be provided.
Subject material will include environmental science, geometry, physical science and statistics.
Rising ninth-graders who wish to continue in the academy may enroll at Salisbury High after a request for an emergency transfer is granted.
The high school portion will begin this fall at Salisbury High with freshmen who attend the summer program. Cumulative records of sophomores interested in enrolling will be reviewed to determine eligibility. Scholarships to Catawba College, ranging from $8,000 to $20,000, are available for top graduates of the academy.
Applications are available at middle schools in the county and at Salisbury High.
An information session is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday or 7 p.m. June 17 in Salisbury High’s media center.
For more information, call 704-636-1221.
