Five students from the Cherry Creek School District have been selected as U.S. Presidential Scholars Program Semifinalists and now advance to the final round of competition for one of our nation’s highest honors for high school seniors. Congratulations to:
They are among 723 semifinalists selected from a nationwide pool of 5,100 qualified candidates, who were chosen from the nearly 3.5 million graduating high school seniors. An additional 14 CCSD students were among the 5,100 candidates for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Congratulations to:
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Later this month, up to 161 students will be named as U.S. Presidential Scholars for 2017.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
