Scott Collegiate Academy

Grades 5-8

Scott Collegiate Academy, founded in 2008, focuses on college readiness and preparing students to excel at Advanced Placement and dual credit courses at the high school level through courses such as AVID. Scott teaches students to pursue academic excellence. It is espe­cially geared towards first-generation college students, giving them the skills necessary to succeed at a high level of education.

Under the Magnet Schools Assistance Program, the vision for this program is to have 8th grade students transition to Ball High School with enough credits to be classified as sophomores. This will accelerate their college preparation so they can accrue 12 college hours or career certifications sooner.

Thanks to magnet funds, Scott will now feature a balanced literacy library for all programs. Students will also be able to participate in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Engineering Pro­gram and the PLTW Biomedical Sci­ences program. Spanish and Chinese classes will also be available, allowing students to take both languages from the elementary level through high school. 

The school also features athletics such as football, volleyball and basketball, a cheer team, an innovative art program, a highly acclaimed band, and an active student council.

Scott Collegiate Academy, currently at 4116 Avenue N ½ is moving at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school  year to 7100 Stewart Road.
