HIGH SCHOOL: TRANSITIONING THRU 12TH GRADE 2024 - 2025
Need a Driving Eligibility Certificate?
Driving Eligibility Certificates: You (parent) will need to visit the school in which your child is currently enrolled to secure the Driving Eligibility Certificate. Each site will set its Driving Eligibility Certificate distribution process. Please contact that school to schedule an appointment. Once scheduled, bring the following documents to the appointment:
Student’s birth certificate or passport
Completed Driver Education Certificate
Proof of address if the current address is different than the one listed on the Driver Education Certificate or the address listed in PowerSchool. Address must be verified for the NC Real ID.
AP Registration Considerations
● Am I ready to challenge myself to take a college level course?
● Am I a naturally curious and motivated learner and truly enjoy the learning process?
● Have I demonstrated a high level of success in a content-related honors course in high school?
● Am I able to learn and master concepts/content independently?
● Am I able to apply what I learn to new situations and not just memorize facts?
● Am I able to organize my thoughts and communicate them in written form?
● Am I able to develop a written thesis/claim and defend it?
● Do I recognize success in an AP course may not be the A that I earned in previous honors/standard classes?
● Am I willing to work hard for the sake of learning and not just a grade?
● Am I willing and able to commit the necessary amount of time to be successful?
● Am I sophisticated enough to handle mature content?
● AP classes are open enrollment (teacher recommendations not required).
● Once students have met the prerequisites, we recommend success in an honors level class prior to taking an AP course but this is not required.
● All AP students are expected to take the College Board AP exam in each of their AP courses.
● AP courses are weighted courses and carry 1 quality point for GPA calculations.
● AP classes are taught on a 4x4 schedule and taught 2nd semester only.
● If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your student’s counselor or high school administrator.

When will the construction on the High School Building be completed?
The construction of the High School building has experienced some delays due to the pandemic. High School students will be housed in a state-of-the-art modular building while waiting for completion of the high school construction project.
What if my child has never taken a Greek class?
As it is part of our mission, it is required for any student who is attending Socrates Academy attend Greek Language Classes. Beginning classes are offered for students who have never taken Greek and are new to the language and culture.
Will the Socrates Academy High School offer Athletics?
Athletics will be offered as long as there is student interest!
