    SFCMS will participate in the School Choice Fair on Saturday December 3 at E.E. Smith High school for families who are interested in making SFCMS their students’ Middle School of Choice. This special event will be an excellent opportunity to meet our faculty and staff and explore our extracurricular clubs and organizations.

    If your child is a current student of SFCMS and plans to return to our school, there is no need to re-apply. However, if you have other children who would like to attend SFCMS next year, you must fill out a choice application for them and submit it per the instructions listed.

    At SFCMS, we offer a vibrant academic program. As a school of choice, we do not have an athletic program. Instead, we focus on a rich roster of academically competitive teams and clubs. It is the goal at SFCMS that every student has at least one extra-curricular activity in which they can participate. Collectively, our academic teams participate in the North Carolina Association for Scholastic Activities (NCASA). More information about our academic teams and clubs is available on SFCMS’s Clubs page.

    Transportation services are available only to those SFCMS students who live in the Seventy-First attendance area. All other parents should be prepared to make arrangements for their students’ transportation to and from school each day.

    Information about our required dress code is available on SFCMS’s Dress Code page.
