The mission of Scotland High School is to foster leadership, creativity, critical thinking and curiosity so our students will be responsible, successful, productive citizens.
Fifty-three Scotland High School students were recognized on Thursday during a ceremony in the Media Center for completing their SAT, the College Board admissions test, with a score of 1500 or higher.

Do you remember what you were doing the summer when you were a rising senior in high school? Did you spend time volunteering for a local charity? Did you go on tours of the local manufacturing plants? Did you make time to meet your local elected officials? Did you spend time taking a history driving tour of your county? Did you take tours of the universities in your area? The last one, you may have done. It is our guess that the ones listed before may not have been a part of your summer agenda.
Even though these are not your typical activities for rising seniors in high school, these are typical activities for the students who are a part of the Junior Leadership program. All these activities are an integral part of this program. This program teaches the members of the class a great deal about their community and gives them a special opportunity to learn real world information to help them to become more educated leaders in their future. It also provides insight into various careers they may want to explore while preparing for graduation and next steps for their future.
Sponsored by the Laurinburg/Scotland County Area Chamber of Commerce's Education Committee, this program will run the week of July 28 - August 1 and is now accepting applications from students that are interested in participating. Holly Goodwin (Scholarship Coordinator) at Scotland High School or Annette Reed (Counselor) at SEarCH have applications. You can also click here for an application as well. Applications are due by April 25. There is no cost for the student to participate.
