Sun Valley HS Graduates Receive National Recognition for College and Career Readiness

The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) recognizes eight Sun Valley HS graduates for completing the Advanced Career (AC) STEM Pathway Academy program of study, Aerospace levels 1-4.

To receive AC Scholar recognition, students must meet the following criteria: 1) complete a college-ready academic core as described in SREB’s High Schools That Work criteria; 2) complete four courses in their chosen AC program of study; 3) score at the proficient or advanced level on two of the four end-of-course examinations; 4) qualify for college entrance without the need for remedial courses in mathematics and English; 5) qualify for college dual credit for AC course work and 6) prepare a portfolio documenting technical and academic growth and achievement.

 

According to Dr. Mike Harvey school principal, the following students meet the criteria for AC Completer or AC Scholar: Keenan Bradley, Lucas Currie, Jared Hough, Ethan Huntley, Nicholas Parker, Ronnie Webb Jr, Keegan Williams, were all completers of all four levels of Aerospace class.
