Welcome to Southern Guilford Academy!


    Southern Guilford Academy

    The Southern Guilford Academy offers programs in three strands; Health Sciences, Agriscience, and Education.  The SG Academy is designed to give highly motivated students the chance to pursue a focused education and career path through specialized courses in the student selected strand.  The Academy is a unique environment that allows students to engage in a  rigorous course of study while exploring academic, career, and personal interests as they prepare to continue their formal education at the  post-secondary level.

    Because Southern Guilford is a traditional high school, students get to participate in the strand of their choice while enjoying all the benefits a traditional high school setting has to offer.

Students are evaluated based on their short answer to the question on the application, 2 teacher recommendations, grades in 7th and 8th grade, as well as their 7th grade EOG scores.  We also take into consideration whether they have taken Math 1 or not.
