Knox Center for Accelerated Studies sets information meetings
Next school year might seem far off in the distance, but it is time to start thinking about options for the 2017-18 school year.
Knox Center for Accelerated Studies has several information meetings scheduled in the coming weeks to familiarize people with the school’s new program.
Knox Middle School started the magnet program this school year and took on the new name. The program is open to all students who reside in Rowan County in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
The program allows students to earn as many as five high school credits while in middle school, which gives them an advantage as they enter high school. While in the program at Knox, students can enroll in the following high school credit courses: world history, Math 1, English 1, earth and environmental science, and Spanish.
At the information meetings, Knox leaders will discuss the program and answer questions. The application window for the program opened Jan. 24 and closes March 10. The meeting schedule is:
• At Knox, 6 p.m. Feb. 9.
• At Millbridge Elementary School, 6 p.m. Feb. 2.
• At China Grove Elementary, 6 p.m. Feb. 7
All meetings are open to any students and families interested in the program, not just those who go to the schools where the meetings are held.
