New Castle Science Students Soar at PJAS Print

The Science Department wants to share the GREAT news of the academic successes of our AWESOME students this past Saturday at the PJAS Competition at Slippery Rock University.  PJAS is the state-sponsored science fair where students design and perform their own science research project and present their findings to a panel of adult scientist judges.  There were 525 students from 54 schools in the 9 surrounding counties. 

Seventy-one New Castle students received 1st place awards!  This is the largest group of 1st place winners of ANY school (private, public, parochial, cyber, charter or homeschool) in the entire state of PA!  Twenty-five of our students received 2nd place awards, and none had a third or fourth award!  Please congratulate them when you see them!

Voices of Democracy Print

Members of Mr. Shaftic’s Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History class have flourished at the local level in a nationwide “Voice of Democracy” competition sponsored by the Lawrence Country VFW.  The "Voice of Democracy" program is open to students in grades 9-12 who are enrolled in a public, private, or parochial high school or home study program in the United States and its territories. The competition involves students preparing a three to five minute spoken essay.  The question students had to answer this year was, “Why Are Veterans Important to our Nation’s History and Future?”   


2015 College Acceptances Print

Every year since the Class of 2009, we challenge members of the senior class to apply to a college/university by October 31st  and to exceed the acceptances of the previous year's senior class. Part of this challenge then involves our shirt-signing tradition, in which students sign the t-shirt covered ceiling tiles of their respective college or university.

Congratulations to our 45 seniors who are currently accepted to a college or university. To view a current list of college acceptanes for the Class of 2015, please click here.
