Parent Nights at SCC

At SCC, we believe that every student is made in the image and likeness of God, and we are focused on helping every student reach his/her own God-given potential.

In this effort, we will be hosting ACT Parent Nights. All parents are encouraged to attend in order to learn more about understanding ACT score reports from our School-wide Testing Day that took place in the fall. During these meetings, our counselors, Suzy Bologna and Kassie deArmas, will give an overview of the materials and scores that our students have already had the opportunity to review here at school. In addition, we will be providing information on TOPS requirements, goal setting, and preparing for our next school-wide test administration in the spring.

Please be aware that we will be observing social distancing, taking temperatures at the entry doors, and wearing masks throughout the meeting.

All nights will start at 6pm and last an hour. In order to pre-register, parents will be sent grade specific emails for each grade with a link to a Google Form that must be completed the day before the date their child's grade-level Parent Meeting. Due to Covid, parents must complete this pre-registration in order to attend.

See the dates below:

Wednesday, February 3 - Juniors * This night will begin at 6:30pm.*
Tuesday, February 9 - Freshmen
Wednesday, February 10 - Sophomores
Thursday, February 11 - 8th Grade
