Soaring Eagles- 21st Century Program
Welcome to the Soaring Eagles page!
The 2020-2021 school year is now in session and the MCHS Soaring Eagles Program is here to serve 9th – 12th grade students and their families. Soaring Eagles provides academic and enrichment opportunities all year long. This program is funded through the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Learning Centers (CCLC) Grant. Our mission with Soaring Eagles is to expand the opportunity for high school students to be able to participate in high quality, educational, recreational, and community filled enrichment programs outside of school hours. To support this mission several of the opportunities offered through Soaring Eagles are lead by teachers and staff at Mercer County High School or in the Mercer County School District.
Homework Help/Tutoring is a major component of Soaring Eagles but other areas such as: Science Olympiad, Book Club, Creative Writing Club, STARBOOKS, Podcast Club, Body Conditioning and Other Enrichment Opportunities will be available as the school year moves forward. Activities & Clubs are ever changing and as students’ needs and interests’ progress we can adjust to fit those we serve. Many of the activities offered have started off as virtual meetings, but we hope to host in-person activities again this school year.
Family opportunities are also an important component of the Soaring Eagles Program at MCHS. Parent/Guardian & Family opportunities will include, but not limited to, FAFSA (Financial Aid) Workshops, Family Painting Nights, Open Houses for Student Showcase, Financial Planning, and College Planning.
