Monday is a day of hands-on science labs, math homework and help, electives, and enrichment classes for grades 6-12. Students will begin their day in the student center with student led worship songs, prayer, and a Bible lesson taught by Mrs. Shaw.

All lessons, Monday-Thursday, are based on common core standards. You can be confident that your child is gaining the valuable skills he/she will need in each grade. Even though some of our classes are multi-age grouped, you can be assured that each student is receiving the appropriate skills for their grade level.

Monday Lesson Overview: Teachers will post on their teacher/student Web site a weekly lesson plan, a list of resources being used in the class, and skills covered. Parents may use this to supplement their home school programs. All science labs will complete the lab portion for any of the science classes offered.

Champion On-Campus Early College Program (Monday)

The deadline for this program is May 15, 2014

We offer this program on our school campus on Mondays; it provides a bridge from high school to college for our Champion students who are college ready, as determined by testing. We encourage all college-ready first time dual enrollment students who have completed tenth grade and up to consider this program.

Students who enroll in any of the Champion Early College classes will receive online instruction from Seminole State online teachers. They will receive both college credit and high school credit for the courses. The Champion on-campus college classes will give students academic support and help as well as help make sure the students transition to the rigors and absolute deadlines of college courses. The deadline to sign up for this program through Champion is May 15, 2014.

Why enroll in our on-campus Early College program instead of regular dual enrollment?

  1. Students stay on the Champion campus with support from Champion teachers. Students can still feel like they are part of our high school and spend time on campus with high school peers, while enrolling in dual enrollment classes and getting college credits. There is no need to worry about your student being on a college campus with college students and adults.

  2. Enrolling with Champion Early College program guarantees the student enrollment in the selected classes. All other dual enrollment students have to wait until the end of regular enrollment and core classes may not be available.

  3. Champion Early College students will all have the same Seminole State courses and teachers and will be able to collaborate and discuss in class.

  4. Champion teachers will help students with coursework and deadlines and help make sure they make a good transition to college.

What Happens on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday?

Our upper school student/teacher ratio is 15:1.

A day at school for T-W-Th students will begin with prayer, pledge of allegiance, and a bible lesson in the Student Center. The focus on T-W-Th is core academics. Teachers will teach on the three days and allow students time in class to work on their lessons. The goal is to accomplish all work for the week on T-W-Th at school. Students that do not complete work at school may have homework in the evening. Math and reading assignments will most likely require some additional work. All homework is due the following day of school. Most students will have at least one-one hour study hall during the school day, depending on their course load.

T-W-Th Lesson Overview: Teachers will post on their teacher/student Web site an overview of the lessons for each week. Parents should review the lessons and have the student print the lesson for their homework folder. Students in grades 6-12 move into a more traditional school curriculum with textbooks, quizzes, tests, and reports.

Courses offered on T-W-Th: All courses are offered as regular or honors.
