Academic Challenge Program
SAM and Hillgrove Schools are honored to host our division’s Academic Challenge programs. The Academic Challenge program is designed to enhance learner competencies and provide students opportunities to study curricular outcomes at a deeper, more comprehensive level of understanding. In this program, students build confidence in managing their own learning in a supportive, inquiry-based environment with others who exhibit characteristics of a gifted learner.
This program does require an application process that includes:
a recommendation from the current school administrator and teacher, AND
a FSIQ standard score of 120 or higher on a psychoeducational assessment.
If you feel this program might be a good fit for your child, please consider attending our Academic Challenge Information Evening Session on Wednesday, February 15th from 6-7pm in the SAM Library.
Also, if you have questions about this program, please do not hesitate to reach out to either:
ATTENDANCE/SIGN IN/SIGN OUT
If a student needs to leave early, the office MUST hear from a parent/guardian. Please email or call the office and we will allow the student to sign out & meet you outside (or walk home).
If a student will arrive late, they are to sign in at the office. If we have been informed the student will be late, that will be an excused late. Without hearing from a parent, the student would be marked as unexcused.
If you have any questions, please ask the office.
