Greenwood, SC 29649
Greenwood School District 50 is honored to offer limited spaces to rising 9th
grade students for the Greenwood 50 Academic Arts Academy (A3).
The Greenwood 50 Academic Arts Academy (A3), will open its doors during the 2018-2019 school year. This choice high school program will provide students the opportunity to excel in rigorous, accelerated curriculum in both academics and visual and performing arts. Students will be required to participate in honors, dual credit, and advanced placement classes. These classes will be a combination of core academic classes and visual and performing arts classes.
A3 students will also have the opportunity to participate in the AP Capstone™ program. AP Capstone™ is a College Board program that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. It cultivates curious, independent, and collaborative scholars and prepares them to make logical, evidence-based decisions. The AP Capstone™ program is publicly endorsed by colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad.
Beginning in 2018, A3 will serve 9th grade students at Greenwood High School. Admission into A3 is based on an application, interview, and audition. Approximately 50 students will be selected the first year with plans to expand the program in future years.
All student applicants should be eligible to attend school in Greenwood School District 50. If the number of qualifying applicants exceeds space, a waiting list will be developed. Vacancies that may occur after the selection process, but prior to the beginning of the school year will be filled from an existing wait list.
