We look forward to welcoming our new Hawks to the nest! If you are an 8th grade student who wishes to participate in IB or wants to apply for the Academy of Finance or our AITR Academy, you must be aware of the following deadlines. We encourage ALL students who are interested to complete the application before the January 29th deadline because we are unable to accept students who miss the deadline.
The Virtual Academy Showcase was on January 14th, but we have recorded the information if you missed it!
GENERAL SESSION In this session, Dr. Sparger welcomed everyone and provided an overview of what we offer at Creek, the academy application process and deadlines, how AVID can fit into whatever academy you choose, and other general questions.
ACADEMY OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND ROBOTICS (AITR) Please email Kimberly Stears at [email protected] with more questions about the academy.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION. Complete the district APPLICATION to apply for AoF or AITR. The IB application is on www.SpruceCreekIB.weebly.com. You can apply to as many academies and programs as you want to and we encourage you to apply if you have any interest. If you miss this deadline and are out of zone you will not have the option to join in the future. If you are in zone, participating in any program will depend upon space, so we recommend you apply as well to secure your spot. IB is not limited in the number of applicants they can accept for the program, so every qualified applicant who meets the January 29th deadline will be accepted. AoF is limited to 90 spots and AITR is limited to 50.
AVID has a later deadline (March 12th) because it is not a program that allows for a variance to attend our school (it is available at all schools). You are able to apply to AVID after you find out if you are accepted to IB or the AoF. AITR functions as a school within a school, so students are unable to participate in AVID. The AVID application is available at www.sprucecreekhigh.com/avid.
