Patriot Scholars

Recognizing the rising academic potential of our high school student body, the Patriot Scholars program was created to facilitate the development of these elite students in becoming the most marketable to the top Universities in the nation.  This program is made up of approximately the top 10% in each grade level, with goals for them to become full Bright Futures Qualifiers, AP Capstone Certified, and achieve a strong HS resume of community service.  The Patriot Scholars program was developed to foster our three pillars of Faith, Character, and Success and includes enrichment opportunities in the summer and throughout the school year, as well as, additional academic and service requirements.  ​We also have a Junior Scholars program that identifies 9th grade students who are top candidates for the Patriot Scholars program that begins in 10th grade.  We believe through program participation, our Scholars will be equipped to graduate as versatile, academically advanced future leaders.
