Celebrate Summer Reading! Even though school’s ending for summer break, doesn’t mean reading needs to end as well! Extensive research shows that young adults who continue to read during the summer maintain or improve their reading skills and perform better when school resumes. Greenville Middle Academy's 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students are encouraged to select the books they want to read, histories, mysteries, sports, and graphic novels. Or listen to audiobooks or podcasts. eBooks and audiobooks are free through the Sora app with your school username and password. The link to GCSD Sora library is found at the bottom of our school webpage.
Students should choose books at their interest and reading levels. Students must record titles and authors on our Celebrate Summer Reading form. Include four sentences about your favorite book read this summer. And, students MUST have a parent/guardian signature to verify the books read. Completed Celebrate Summer Reading! forms must be turned in to Mrs. Carey in the Media Center by Friday, August 25, 2023. Top Readers will be recognized!
We look forward to welcoming our newest Rams! Join us for a Parent/Student Orientation on Friday, August 4 from 4:30-5:15 PM to hear the important components of our school.
Welcome Back, RAMS! We can't wait to see you on Friday, August 4 from 6:30-7:30 PM. Say hi to your teachers, get information (bus transportation, visit health room, etc.), and tour the school.
South Carolina law states that ALL students are required to have the Tdap vaccine BEFORE they enter 7th grade. This means that your 6th grader should get the vaccination during his/her annual doctor visit this year. The Tdap vaccine can be obtained at your primary health care provider, the Health Department, or various walk-in clinics.
Please make sure your student has the Tdap vaccine this year and have the vaccine certificate sent to school as soon as it is completed. If your child already had the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the DHEC South Carolina immunization form to the school to ensure that we have it on record. Your child will not be able to attend the 7th grade, or pick up a schedule the week before, until we have this form on record at school. Please note that vaccine records after June 30, 2022, can only be accepted if it is on the official DHEC SC immunization form. Thank you for your help.
Don't delay! Without submitting the vaccination record before the start of school can delay when your student will start school!

Please use the links to access the EDP Handbook and EDP Registration. Priority will be given to current EDP families and rising 6th grade families. If space is available, we will open registration to 7th and 8th graders.
As we are preparing for the next school year's registration, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. This determines the school your student will attend. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school.

Admission into magnet academies is open to all eligible students, but spaces are limited. Students may apply to more than one magnet academy. Applications are scored based on four criteria: attendance, discipline, grade average (student interview in Grades K-5, 1, 2), and a student statement indicating why the student would like to attend the magnet academy. Students who apply and qualify during the first application period have a greater chance of being offered a slot than those students who apply and qualify in later rounds.
