Our Vision

Our vision is to create an inclusive environment centered on fostering independent critical thinkers and inquiry-based problem solvers who meet their academic potential through a rigorous curriculum of project-oriented programs and real world experiences.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve the Red Clay Consolidated School District as a 6th through 12th grade life science magnet school that promotes pride and ownership of education in an academically challenging learning community. This begins with an accelerated middle school program that prepares students to become diligent scholars of the bio-science pathways in the upper grades while maintaining a traditional high school experience. The goal is for students to graduate with the knowledge and skills to be college and career ready.

Advanced Placement Information - AP Exam registration and payment is due October 1st to the guidance office. A table will be set-up at Back to School Night for families to register and pay for exams.
