Important Information for the New School Year

Hello Parents and Welcome again to the SWA Family! Each student should have been given a blue folder with their schedules. The folder contains important and timely information about PTO, My Hot Lunchbox, Student Services, and attendance. Some of these forms will need to be signed and returned.

If your child did not receive this folder, please email your child’s advisor so that we can get a folder for them. Your student’s advisor is listed on their schedule under Advisory and their contact information can be found on the website at under About SWA. The students will meet for advisory on Aug.31st.

UNC Charlotte – The Levine Scholars Program


Levine Scholar Applicant Profile

The program seeks outstanding high school seniors who demonstrate evidence of experience, motivation, and commitment toward the ideals of the Levine Scholars Program.

Requirements include:

  • Students must be applicants for freshman enrollment at UNC Charlotte in a baccalaureate program for the fall term immediately following their high school graduation. Students must be admitted to UNC Charlotte to receive a Levine Scholarship.
  • Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
  • Students must demonstrate a commitment to community service, hold an academic record that reflects a sustained passion for knowledge, and possess a capacity for ethical leadership that beckons fellow students toward a higher standard.
  • Successful candidates will likely have a grade point average of 3.8 – 4.00 (unweighted) and score 1900 – 2400 on the three combined sections of the SAT or 29 – 36 on the ACT composite. Thus, while there are no minimum SAT, ACT or grade point averages to apply for the Levine Scholarship, students must excel academically.

Honors Graduation


With the start of a new school year comes the start of a new scholarship. Our Utah-based graduation supply company has offered essay scholarships each year and we are looking to continue the tradition.

For the 2014-2015 school year, our sister site Honors Grad U is offering FIVE $1,000.00 scholarships to different students who qualify.

Instead of an essay, we are pioneering a multi-media scholarship contest where students can submit projects in art, photography, videography, music, and creative writing.

We eagerly seek your help in extending this information to all seniors of the 2015 graduating class!
