BINGHAMTON — Seton Catholic Central High School (SCCHS) welcomes perspective students and parents to visit during an upcoming Open House, which will follow placement exams for incoming freshman.
The first administration of the incoming 9th grade placement test will be given on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the SCCHS Cafeteria. This test is open to any current eighth graders in Catholic or public middle schools or who are home schooled. It’s free and is used to help place students in the correct levels of ninth grade classes. In addition, the students with the highest scores are nominated for the Seton Scholar Scholarship Award. Anyone thinking about attending SCCHS in 2011–2012 as a freshman should register and take the test. Please call the SCCHS Guidance Office at 723-5307 for more information and/or to register your child to take the test.
Following the placement test, Seton Catholic will host an open house to all those interested in attending Seton Catholic Central High School or middle school. Tour the building, meet faculty, see art work, technology demonstrations and much, much more. The open house activities are from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
SCCHS, Class of 2010 was offered 6.2 million dollars in scholarships for 84 graduating seniors. That class also featured a National Merit Winner.
In late September SCCHS received notification from the College Board Advanced Placement Program that 32 students have been recognized as AP Scholars. The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.8 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.
