Barbers Hill Middle School South

Select Academic Team


Whitney Keene
Students are invited to be members of the Select Academic Team as a result of their strong academic achievement (95th percentile or higher) on the PSAT 8/9, PSAT/NMSQT, SAT, ACT, or other achievement assessment.
The goals of the Select Academic Team (S.A.T.) are to provide academic enrichment activities to position these selected students to become National Merit Scholars, obtain admission into the colleges of their choice, and to become competitive for college scholarships.
As members of the Select Academic Team, students will have the opportunity to participate in academic summer activities and meet regularly with an academic coach. Regular meetings with an academic coach are held throughout the school year. Activities for team members may include field-based experiences such as job shadowing, cultural and fine arts events, visits to college campuses, and opportunities to interact with experts in various fields.  All academic and social activities are designed to increase students' academic and test-taking abilities, knowledge in specific areas, and engagement in team building activities.
