The SciCore Humanities Fair of 2019!

Humanities Fair

Our humanities fair this year was the best yet! Concerts and plays were timed and scheduled for each category of humanities classes we offer including comedy skits, Shakespeare, demonstrations and skits from our various language classes (Chinese, and Spanish), and recitations of famous speeches from middle school English classes. In between the plays, dances, and demonstrations, our hand bell choirs and choruses for each grade performed. Fruit salad, baked goods, and drinks were served in the intermission. Thank you teachers and students for the outstanding work!

The Annual SciCore Science Fair of 2019

The SciCore Science Fair is one of the biggest highlights of the school year! Students filled the gym with various different projects on scientific fields, from Biology to Engineering. The students spent time explaining their projects to passerby while waiting for their judge and many received rave reviews and honorable mentions within their grade, with first and second place often being determined by only a few points of difference. You can find pictures of the science fair on our Facebook page @SciCoreAcademyHightstown. Great work everyone!

The SciCore Math Fair of 2019

Math Fair

Our annual SciCore math fair was a mind-expanding experience as always. Students from grades 1-12 were able to explore various mathematical laws, patterns, and equations that can be found in nature and in the abstract. Students were able to both hone their presentation skills as well as their understanding of mathematical concepts at the fair. 

Mardi Gras Festivities of 2019!

Our annual Mardis Gras Party is an excellent way for our students to have fun, enjoy food, and learn about a unique holiday and culture all at the same time! Purple, gold, and green bedecked the gym as students learned about the history of Mardi Gras on the second floor of the middle school. After class, the students lined up in the hallways of the first floor, and began a march to classic New Orleans jazz around the gym. After the march, everyone sat down and enjoyed food and music, eventually giving away to dancing and games.

The SciCore Christmas Party of 2018!

Christmas Party

Our SciCore tradition includes the great festival of Christmas and many of our parents and students claimed that this was our best party yet! Many were dressed in festive colors, ready for food and good cheer.  We enjoyed performances from our hand bell ensembles and choruses from various different grades, a buffet meal, a decorated gym with a manger and Christmas tree, and dancing. Have a great Christmas vacation everyone!

The Pie Day of 2018!

As we enter more deeply into autumn, we set aside a day for our students and staff to reflect on all of the blessings they have in their lives. We spent much of the day teaching students about Thanksgiving, sharing pies, and taking a break from studies to relax and enjoy the holiday and the changing weather. Many of our students helped to donate to the Rise food pantry nearby. Enjoy the Fall everyone!

Pie Day

Halloween at SciCore!


Our students enjoyed dancing, eating, and showing off their costumes at out annual Halloween party! The students also built catapults for the annual SciCore Pumpkin Chunkin where they would see which catapult could throw a pumpkin the farthest and highest. We all had fun sharing treats, dancing to music provided by our DJ, Jeff Costello, and competing in costume competitions for each grade. Thank you parents, teachers, and students for this wonderful time!

Mardi Gras 2

February 11, 2016

This year's SciCore Mardi Gras party featured its usual array of music, food, and good cheer. The party celebrates a Catholic religious holiday rooted in French culture which marks a feast before a time of fasting known as Lent. The vice-principal of SciCore Academy, Mrs. Poulos, comes from a Creole family background that is immersed in Mardi Gras French-American culture. She conducted the preparations for the party with her knowledge of this culture and prepared authentic Mardi Gras dishes for all to enjoy. After the food, students, parents, and teachers enjoyed dancing, music, and activities.

SciCore Christmas Party With Santa Claus

December 18, 2015


Students were reeling in anticipation for today's SciCore Christmas Party, an event that captured the holiday spirit in the multipurpose school gym. Classes were light on schoolwork and homework due to the two week holiday break from classes and the students could hardly wait to celebrate its beginning at the party. Mrs. Poulos and volunteers comprised of staff and parents helped decorate and organize the gym to match the festivities. In the kitchen, the volunteers organized various dishes of food which included dessert. When the party began, Santa Claus made an appearance to hear Christmas wishes from children. After the food, the DJ, Jeff Costello, blasted music throughout the gym that inspired many to get up and dance while others continued to enjoy their dessert. Merriment continued for the rest of the school day, concluded by farewells from Dr. and Mrs. Poulos.

This year's SciCore Halloween Party was a ghoulish extravaganza of color and sound. Students wearing incredible costumes walked into the gym for lunchtime after the school day had ended. They were greeted with decorations and food that matched the holiday atmosphere. Dancing, costume contests, and musical chairs followed the eating to complete the Halloween party. Students were ready to enjoy the weekend after partying with their friends.

SciCore Pie Day

Today marked the annual SciCore Pie Day, an event where students and staff bring various pies to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. A simple but effective party ensued, where a multitude of various pies were consumed in an extended lunch period.

Mathematics Fair

November 20, 2015

The 2015 SciCore Mathematics Fair featured math presentations from all grade levels that showed a comprehensive understanding of the material well above many of their age peers. Parents, teachers, and students set up their projects on tables in the multipurpose gym area and prepared their presentations on various topics based on the theme of the history of mathematics. Judges then proceeded to carefully examine each of the projects and graded them based on the students' presentation knowledge of the material and the layout of their posters. At the end of the fair, winners of the fair for both the middle and high schools were announced. The students enjoyed each other's company and projects after they were graded and spent the rest of the night learning about math and its applications.

College Application/Preparation Seminar

September 24, 2015

This evening at 7:00 PM Dr. Poulos hosted the annual SciCore application/preparation informational seminar. Parents and students gathered at the high school facility at 125 Railroad Ave. around a table to listen to a presentation on the various facets of the college application and financial aid processes. The group eventually separated into one-on-one dialogue with Dr. Poulos to discuss their current progress in the process and strategies for the near future.
