Fifth-Graders, Parents Invited to Discover Middle School Specialty Programs

Provided by Prince William County Schools (PWCS)

Learn about the broad range of opportunities available to PWCS middle school students at the upcoming Middle School Specialty Programs general information sessions.

  • Oct. 9, 7:00-9:00 p. m., Kelly Leadership Center
  • Oct. 10, 7:00-9:00 p. m., Kelly Leadership Center

Representatives of specialty programs will be on hand to answer your questions and provide detailed information about their respective programs at both meetings.

Note that an application is required to participate in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, the Mathematics and Science Programs, World Languages Program, and Traditional Schools Program even when the program location is in the student’s base school.

If a program receives applications for more students than the program can accept or the school can house, a lottery is held to select program participants. Under conditions of extreme overcrowding of a given school, a program may be open only to students within the school’s boundary and may be closed to all transfer students. Additionally, other programs may be filled through lottery if necessary due to capacity.

The application deadline is February 1, 2018 for most PWCS schools.
