Attention 8th grade students applying to the CPS academies (Science and Medicine, International Baccalaureate, and/or Governor’s STEM Academy). This is just a friendly reminder that once a student has submitted Part A, the student will be given Part B (teacher recommendations and admission agreement). It is the student’s responsibility to obtain Part B from Mrs. Melton in the guidance department and distribute the teacher recommendations to current core teachers. The admission agreement must be turned in to Mrs. Melton by January 15, 2019. All applicants must also participate in an on-site assessment/writing sample session at the respective program high school following the submission of the application in order for the application to be complete.
