Cambridge International AICE Diploma - Applications Available
Smyrna High School will be the only school in Rutherford County to offer the internationally recognized Cambridge International Pathway. Upon successful completion of the full program, students will be awarded the Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma. This is an international curriculum and examination system that emphasizes the value of broad and balanced study. Alongside in-depth understanding of a variety of subjects, students who take the Cambridge courses will also master a broad range of skills critical for success in university study and all forms of employment. We are excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity to our Bulldog students.

We have linked our scholarship database directly to this page. Please check back often; the database is updated multiple times a week.
We have also found a scholarship database that is updated monthly. It is an outside source that we are not associated with, but we wanted to make sure we share resources with our students: https://jlvcollegecounseling.com/scholarships/monthly-scholarships/
School Counseling Appointments
We also ask that parents use this same link when requesting an appointment. We have an open door policy when it comes to meeting with parents; however, having a scheduled appointment allows us to be fully prepared for the meeting and also allows us to make sure we are not involved in other meetings or counseling groups when the parent arrives. Please review the appointment links: http://shs.rcschools.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=562976&type=d&pREC_ID=1133047
