The Bulldog Life Newsletter contains important information about school events, student and staff recognition, athletics, and points of pride.
The Junior Leadership program is open to students who will be juniors or seniors during the 2023-2024 school year.
It is a year-long program that is supported by the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Kershaw County School District and Camden Military Academy. Participants represent Camden High, Lugoff-Elgin High, North Central High and Camden Military Academy.
The program starts with an introductory session and a team-building challenge at Camp Canaan in Rock Hill. Other sessions during the year cover public speaking, social and economic issues, non-profits, touring each of the high schools, and visiting the State House in Columbia to meet the local legislative delegation.
The deadline to submit your application is Friday, March 24th. See Mrs. Horton in the Library if you have questions about the Junior Leadership program.
You must make your own copy and share with Mrs. Horton's email: email@example.com

Students who need to validate courses due to excessive absences should read the information carefully.
We want to make sure all students and parents are aware of two free tutoring services for all students.
First, Tutor.com is a live tutoring service for all subjects from 8 AM- 10 PM each day. Please visit https://www.kcsdschools.net/tutor for more information.
Second, we offer a tutoring center for all students. On Mondays and Wednesdays, students may receive tutoring from Mrs. Speaks in Room 409 for English and Social Studies. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students may receive tutoring from Mrs. Ferrugia in Room 210 for Science and Math.
Again, both of these options are at no cost to our students.

The Kershaw County School District began implementing clear bag procedures on December 1, 2019 for middle and high school extracurricular activities as an added safety measure.
Under the guidelines, persons can use clear tote bags no bigger than 12x6x12 inches or a clear plastic bag no larger than a gallon size to carry items into extracurricular activities. Keys, wallets, phones, credit cards and cash may be carried in a pocket or in hand. Medically necessary items will be able to be brought in after proper inspection at the gates.
Visitors can also bring seat cushions that do not have pockets, zippered pockets, compartments or covers. Umbrellas and clear rain ponchos are also acceptable as well as small clutches that are no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches.

Commitment to Excellence
"Our mission is to provide an environment where students feel inspired to become active, successful, productive, and confident members of society."
Camden High School students and staff are committed to excellence in academics, athletics, and extra-curricular activities.
"Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of intentions, and the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none...coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism."
