Super Scholar & Creed

Super Scholar Incentive

Super Scholar is an incentive for our students to learn all of the memory work.  Awards are given to those who have successfully memorized each subject area. They can choose all or one or more subjects to work toward. At year’s end, a tutor will randomly quiz the student with the beginning portion of the memory work or asking about a topic such as “Tell me about the area of a rectangle.” and the student will respond, “The area of a rectangle equals length times width.” or, “Finish this statement: The Civil Rights movement started in” and the child will respond with the entire history statement. Once the tutor is satisfied the child indeed has achieved the award, achievements and prizes will be celebrated and awarded at our Year End Showcase!
