The deadline to apply for Spark! experiential learning opportunities for the 2020-2021 school year is Sunday, January 26 at 11:59 p.m. Students must submit an online application.
The Spark! Program allows Parkway and Rockwood high school junior and senior students to “test drive” their career areas of interest while they are in high school for academic credit towards graduation. Students work on real-world projects with real-world industry leaders in the areas of Entrepreneurship, Teaching & Learning, Technology Solutions, Bioscience, Engineering, and Health Sciences. In addition, we have a new strand launching in August -- Spark! Sports Medicine! Spark! Sports Medicine is designed for students interested in professions in sports medicine such as athletic training, physical therapy, orthopedics, and sports performance. Students will connect with professionals and engage in fieldwork, simulations, and internships!
Applications for all Spark! strands are available at www.parkwayspark.com.
Parkway Virtual offers students in grades 9-12 with a flexible, online choice to extend and enrich learning as well as complete a portion of their coursework and earn credit toward graduation. Because virtual instruction can be an effective education option for some students, Parkway may offer virtual courses to students through district staff or by contracting for those services as part of the district-sponsored curriculum. In addition, eligible students may enroll in virtual courses offered through the Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP).
Parkway’s preference is as follows:
Student selects a Parkway Virtual course which provides Parkway district curriculum taught by a Parkway teacher (course offerings are listed below)
If a student needs a course that is not offered through the Parkway Virtual program, students should select a course offered through our preferred virtual provider, Launch.
If a course is not provided through Launch, students should select a course from the MOCAP course catalog.
An online application for Virtual courses is available at: parkwayvirtual.com Students should indicate their preferences for summer 2020, fall semester 2020 and/or spring semester 2021 when they register.
The Early College program is a full-immersion, early entrance to college program located on the campus of St. Louis Community College (STLCC) at Wildwood. Students attend the Early College for two years, replacing the junior and senior years of traditional high school. While in the program, students engage in a curriculum consisting of all college coursework taught by professors at STLCC-Wildwood. Upon successful completion, students earn an Associate of Arts degree, as well as a high school diploma. Early College is open to rising juniors at all four Parkway high schools and will offer 15 seats for the 2020-2021 school year. The application is available at: https://sites.google.com/
