Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is our pleasure to introduce our new Accelerated Program for students entering Grades 6-8 in September 2017.
Students in this program will do accelerated work beyond grade level to prepare them for the rigors of the Specialized High School Exam and to take Regents Exams in Earth Science and Algebra at the end of their eighth grade year.
Seats in this program are limited, and applicants must meet at least two of the following three criteria:
- Cumulative average of 85 or higher in all major subjects, and of 90 or higher in each individual subject that will have accelerated instruction (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies)
- Percentile 70% or higher in Reading & Math on most recent Terra Nova exam and/or 3 or higher on most recent New York State Exams
- Recommendation of a current or former teacher for this program (4th Grade or higher)
Tentative acceptance and deferral notices will be distributed on Thursday, June 22. Please note that students may be assigned to a combination of regular and accelerated classes.
To apply, please complete this form and return it to your campus office by Tuesday, June 20.
New students may return the form via mail or fax, and have an extended deadline of Friday, July 7.
Sincerely in Christ,
Kevin John Coyne
