Seniors I want to thank you for your participation in our Senior Wellness Wednesday survey.  Your voices have been heard and on March 3rd at 11am we will have Christina Villegas from the Emily K Center here to educate you on last minute college application information, RDS and FAFSA applications with special attention to Latinx families, and how to make a Gap Year a productive year.  All are welcomed to this session, so please don’t hesitate to invite the family.  

For 11th grade students who are taking the make-up ACT assessment this week, dates run from Tuesday, March 2 – Thursday, March 4. Please arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. to be checked in. Testing begins at 9:00 a.m. Once testing begins, you cannot be allowed into the testing site, so please arrive on time. Make sure you wear your mask. 


There are two application-based, selective academic programs at the Emily K Center:

  • Pioneer Scholars (grades 1-8): a free, academic enrichment program serving academically-focused elementary and middle school students in Durham County who aspire to attend college after high school. The goal of the program is to establish a strong foundation of academic and leadership skills so that students enter high school ready to excel in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that will put them on the path to admission at select colleges and universities. (Director-Nephitearya Bailey Singleton: nbailey@emilyk.org)    
  • the Scholars to College program (grades 9-12): a free, competitive college-prep program with one end-goal: to ensure that bright, ambitious students from underrepresented backgrounds are highly prepared for and appropriately matched with selective and/or generous universities, graduating with low or no debt. (Director-Camille Wilson: cwilson@emilyk.org)
