To benefit from SciCore's academic programs, incoming students should meet certain minimal achievement standards in mathematics, English composition, and English comprehension. Consequently, all student candidates must pass a written examination prepared by the academy prior to admission. In borderline cases, deficiencies may be remedied in a summer program held at SciCore Academy.
Equally important to the admissions process is a formal interview with prospective students and their parents. This interview is a chance for students, parents, and the admissions counselor to explore expectations on both sides. It is important for students and parents to understand SciCore's commitment to strong academic standards in a positive learning environment. To achieve this environment, students must be prepared to make a commitment to uphold the values of academic honesty, fair play, persistence, and adherence to behavioral norms.
