Academic Enhancement Program
The average ACT score for the Class of 2017 is 24. This is well above the state and national average, and we are extremely proud of the accomplishments of this group of graduates. However, this number does not reflect the diversity of learners in the Class of 2017. The top 10% of the class have an average ACT score of 31. The top quartile average is 29. Every graduate will pursue post secondary education.
Academic Enhancement for Talented Students
Honors, AP and Dual Credit courses are offered to meet the learning needs of those with strong academic ability.
The Freshman Honors Seminar is available to those freshmen whose high school placement test placed them in the top 10% of our test takers.
The Senior Independent Program (SIP) is offered to qualified and interested members of the senior class. SIP is a student-directed , full-year program offered by application only. Students in this program earn two high school credits, attending SIP every day for a two-period block. Current seniors enrolled in this course underwent an application process that included student proposals for individual projects, teacher recommendations, and student interviews. SIP participants will complete an individual project based on individual student interest.
Academic Enhancement for Motivated Students
Seniors with a 3.3 GPA and a score of 21 on the ACT may enroll in courses at Spalding University. Enrolled students take six hours each semester during the allotted academic Enhancement block.
Presentation offers several dual-credit courses in which students receive college credit for their high school classes.
Leadership Internship: This ½ high school credit opportunity is offered to juniors and seniors by application only. No minimum ACT score is required. Students must complete 45 hours with a professional outside of school times, complete a portfolio and present the portfolio to the Executive Committee of Presentation’s Board of Trustees.
Academic Enhancement for College-Bound Students with Special Learning Needs
Those students who have a diagnosed learning difference may be considered for this program.
FastForward and a Reading/Writing Lab are offered during freshman year and FastForward II is offered during the sophomore year. This class meets daily and students participate in a program to increase their reading level. In addition to working on reading skills, students in this program receive special monitoring to increase their opportunities for academic success.
Select sophomores, juniors and seniors with a 504 Plan may enroll in an Academic Enhancement class that meets one period each day. Presentation will pilot a study skills course entitled SOAR with this group of students during the 2014-15 school year.
Those students with 504 Plans who area scheduled into alternate electives will continue to receive all accommodations outlined in their plan.
