Our Vision for North Augusta High School:
To engage ALL students in the world class knowledge and skills needed to successfully realize their post-secondary goals through the development and implementation of relevant college and career readiness pathways.
· Our teaching should evoke curiosity and global awareness from students.
· Our speech and actions towards students and each other should come from a place of empathy.
· Our philosophies should involve a dedication to increasing students' sense of social wareness and social responsibility.
· Our practice should value both college and career paths and celebrate them equally.
· Although classroom learning is vital, experiential learning through internships, research and service learning enhances the academic setting and brings lasting knowledge.
SAT Prep Workshop
Aiken County Public Schools will be offering a FREE SAT Prep Workshop on Saturday, March 4th, 2017. The workshop will be held at South Aiken High School from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. Students may choose to bring a lunch or purchase pizza and soft drinks at the school. Students must have their own transportation to South Aiken High School.In order to attend, students must sign up in guidance and receive a ticket. The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, March 1st at 4:00 pm.On the day of the workshop, students must bring their ticket and their school ID to be admitted. Please contact your school counselor for more information.
On Tuesday, February 28th, all 11th grade students throughout Aiken County will be participating in the ACT statewide assessment. The assessment will be administered during the regular school day at no cost to you. In addition, all registration requirements have been handled by the school.
The ACT test scores provide information about your student’s progress toward college readiness and are widely used by colleges in making decisions about admission. Students will be able to share their ACT scores with up to four colleges or universities for free. The ACT test includes multiple-choice tests in English, Reading, Mathematics, and Science, as well as an essay-based Writing test.
Students may bring a snack to school on testing day since the lunch period will be slightly delayed due to testing. Snacks may only be eaten outside the testing room during the 15-minute break that is allotted. Students may not bring cell phones or any electronics with the exception of approved calculators (math section only) into the testing room.
These assessments are very important and we ask your support in ensuring your student:
- Is well-rested,
- has had a nourishing breakfast
- arrives on-time for school and
- gives their very best effort.
Additional information on the ACT may be found on the District’s website under the Office of Accountability and Assessment page at http://www.acpsd.net/Page/20165 or from the homepage go to Home>Departments>Accountability & Assessment>Student & Parent Resources> ACT RESOURCES. You may also visit the ACT website by following the following links:
Later this spring, all 11th grade students will also participate in the ACT WorkKeys assessment. These tests measure what your student has learned and will provide information about your student’s readiness for post high school education or entry into a career. The scores from the ACT can be used for many purposes such as entrance into college and some technical schools, scholarship applications, and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) eligibility. Your student can also earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) from the WorkKeys Assessment. The NCRC is used by a growing number of employers to make sure prospective employees have the skills necessary for the job they are applying for.
If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact your student’s counselor or any school administrator.
