A Parent's Praise

Below is a letter we received from Mrs. Cindy Brown.  Her student is enrolled in the Scholars Academy Magnet.  We want to say thank you Ms. Brown for we are honored by your words of praise.

"Scholars Academy has provided my son with an environment that encourages academic excellence, leadership, and community service.   My son, along with many of his peers, will graduate this year having taken 9 AP classes, as well as a member of the National Honors Society, the Science National Honor Society, and the Beta Club.  The curriculum is rigorous and challenging which prepares the students for the work they will confront in college.  These students are highly motivated, bright, and have a strong work ethic.

The Scholars program provides many opportunities for the student to explore leadership and community service activities as well.  My son participated in various after school events and served as an officer of the Scholars Symposium.  Through this he has learned accountability, time management, and the need to think of others.

Aside from the challenging curriculum, service opportunities, and wonderful teachers, the students develop a core group of friends that share the same work ethic and high standards as your student.  They attend after school functions together, lead study groups, and in general hold each other accountable for their individual success.

Scholars Academy has been a perfect fit for our son; and we have enjoyed seeing his academic and social growth over these past four years.  He is as prepared for college as he can be; and we have the Scholars Academy lead by Nicole Walker and a group of amazing teachers to thank for that. "

--Cindy Brown

FACULTY Kudos: Introducing Co-Author, Nicole Walker

ACADEMICS Spotlight: Scholars Academy Supports George Stinney


The Scholars Academy Magnet Sophomore Research Seminar is putting social justice into practice through an intensive research project on George Stinney, the youngest person in the 20th century to be executed.  Stinney was charged with the first-degree murders of Betty Binnicker and Mary Thames in Alcolu, Clarendon County, South Carolina in 1944.  With no physical evidence or eyewitnesses to the murders, an all white jury, and having his family run out of town while he was on trial, young Stinney was sentenced to the Columbia Penitentiary to be executed by electric chair after a confession, of which there were no written records, was given.  In January, a motion was filed to reopen the case in hopes of exonerating Stinney.  

The students have spent the semester constructing a webpage with resources surrounding the case and have started Twitter and Instagram pages to inform people on the case in hopes of seeing this exoneration come to fruition.  On Wednesday, June 4, members of the Stinney extended family visited students to provide them with documents from the original 1944 trial, as well as relay stories of the family struggles and help provide insight into the needs of the movement today.  The Scholars Academy Magnet Sophomore class hopes to make a difference.  A rally for George Stinney will be held at the State House on Monday, June 16th at 12:30 PM.
