On April 11, 2017, all sophomores and juniors in Colorado will be taking the PSAT 10 and SAT at their home schools. The good news? It’s free! AND you don’t have to do a thing to register. But wait … there’s more! Millions of dollars in scholarships (yes, millions…) are tied to both assessments, so even if you’re not 100% sure about your after-high-school plans, still use this time to prepare just in case - they’re there anyways, might as well get the most you can out of it!
Greetings and welcome to the New Year. We are busily approaching the end of the open enrollment season, ramping up for registration in the 2017-2018 school year, and nearing the graduation for the Class of 2017!

Silver Creek's Leadership Academy celebrated its 3rd Capstone Project Expo on Monday, December 12.
The focus of the Leadership Academy is to help students gain hands-on leadership experience and build skills related to ethics, communication, critical and creative thinking, respect, vision and teamwork. There are currently 325 students in the program from grades 9 to 12.
With first semester all but in the books at this point, I would like to take the opportunity to share with you several of the events currently occurring at Silver Creek High School. While our first semester brought some new challenges, we have also experienced unprecedented successes amongst our students and faculty.
