November brings with it a season of gratitude and thanks. Life at South Shore Charter is no exception. This month academic achievement abounds as we celebrate twenty-one new John and Abigail Adams Scholars from the Class of 2024.  In the upper grades, South Shore Charter has had the privilege of hosting two esteemed guest speakers: author Dr. Caroline Kautire and Holocaust survivor Werner Salinger. Enthusiasm reigns in our K-8 classrooms with the hard work of day-to-day learning and lively special events.  Be it a field trip to Holly Hill Farm, completing the fall road race, or donning a special outfit at Literacy Lane, we remain grateful for special moments our students provide every day.  

With so many wonderful happenings here at South Shore Charter, it’s impossible not to be excited about the beginning of enrollment season. For those of you new to South Shore Charter, this is the time of the year when our school showcases student achievement and the school community. Applications for the 2024-2025 school year are now available. The new application for 2024-2025 may be found under Admissions on the SSCPS website. For our current families, siblings of current students seeking admission must complete an application and participate in the Enrollment Lottery. Current students do not need to reapply.

On the evening of November 2, 2023, we hosted Open House for new students and prospective families.  We received 225 guests at 100 Longwater Circle and 71 guests at 700 Longwater Drive. The School will continue to host admissions events throughout January and February. The application deadline is Thursday, February 29, 2024. The Enrollment Lottery will be on March 8, 2024. 

Every year the number of applications we receive exceeds the number of openings. Our waitlist has remained long and steady despite post-pandemic challenges. We greatly attribute this persistent strong interest to our current students and families who spread the word about our school and mission. Your message about our school and what a South Shore Charter education means to you and your family has proven invaluable. Thank you for reaching out to your community and sharing our mission of inspiring every student to excel in academics, service, and life.
