Salisbury Academy has opened registration for a wide variety of camps with unique themes and experiences.
The school offers camp programs for children entering junior kindergarten through rising ninth-grade students. Children do not have to attend the school to enroll in camp programs.
Six weeks of sessions are offered beginning June 9 and ending July 25, with morning, afternoon and whole-day sessions. The program also offers flexible drop-off and pick-up schedules.
Camps themes include: cooking, art, nature hunters, swimming, science, math, scooter games, reading and writing, sports and more.
“The summer camps at Salisbury Academy provide a variety of new things for my kids to try,” said Julie Hlavacek. “Everything from learning how to become a mad scientist, to basketball, to learning how to cook, to exploring all kinds of nature, and learning how to paint masterpieces. There is something for everyone.”
“My kids love seeing their friends and I love that they can brush up on educational skills,” said Traci Williams. “And what we love most is the themes and the instructors that bring the camps to life each week. Both of my girls try to attend as many camps as they can each summer.”
For a complete camp schedule, visit www.salisburyacademy.org. Registration is open.
Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) to be considered for grants, scholarships and student loans to pay for college.
Catawba College is hosting a free FASFA Day provided by the College Foundation of North Carolina Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. until noon. Financial specialists and college aid professionals will be available to help students complete and submit their FASFA electronically. Students do not need to plan to attend Catawba College to come to the event.
The college is also hosting open house. Please contact mtmiller@catawba.edu if you have any questions.
The deadline for applying for the Morgan R. Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund is March 31. The amount of the scholarship has yet to be determined, but more than $6,300 has been awarded since 2005.
The scholarship for Rowan County students who were homeschooled during their junior and senior years was established in memory of 11-year-old Morgan Gray, a Rowan County homeschool student who died in an automobile accident in 2001.
Applicants must be full-time students accepted by a college, university, nursing, business or trade school; present evidence of good character by participation in extracurricular activities including community affairs, church, employment and other endeavors and show proof of home schooling during the junior and senior years of high school.
Unlike many scholarships, this one is open to any full-time college student meeting these requirements, not just rising freshmen. Funds may be used for tuition, books, and/or school supplies. Previous applicants may re-apply for this scholarship.
Applications can be found in the Homeschool Vertical file at the Rowan County Public Library in Salisbury or online at www.rchsa.com.
Questions can be directed to Peter Gray, 704-267-5131.
