The Scholars Academy is an accelerated college preparatory magnet program for highly motivated and goal-oriented students who are interested in pursuing a curriculum that is more rigorous than that found in a traditional middle school or high school program. Approximately 600 students are enrolled in the grades 6-12 program. The Scholars Academy is organized as a "school within a school," providing students full access to athletics, band, and other extracurricular activities of the base schools.
The accelerated program balances high expectations with high support. Morning, afternoon, and midday study hall tutorials are scheduled as needed to assist students with additional support in meeting the academic demands of the program. Through a combination of Advanced Placement and early college classes, students may earn up to two full years of college credit through the program.
Admission to the program is by portfolio application. Applicants are rated on a 100 point scale:
Middle school applicants should submit Georgia Milestones or ITBS scores. High School applicants should submit EOCTs, PSAT, or SAT. Students applying from schools where the previous tests are not given may provide alternate standardized test scores.
