Monroe County Community School Corporation

ENGAGE EMPOWER EDUCATE On behalf of the Board of School Trustees and Administrative Team, I hope you have had a most memorable summer break. Thank you for making the 2018-2019 school year an exceptional year! Throughout the past year we celebrated many achievements of our students and staff that continue to make MCCSC a leader in education around the State and Nation. The Class of 2019 included seventeen National Merit Finalists, four National Merit Scholars, two Lilly Scholars, three Next Generation Hoosier Scholars, three Wells Scholars, sixty-two Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars, thirty-eight AP Scholar Honors, forty AP Scholars with Distinction, and seven National AP Scholars. They also earned over 6.3 million dollars in scholarships! We congratulate our students, families, and staff as together we celebrate their success! As public schools are increasingly held to tighter financial funding by the State, this community continues to stand tall in support of the MCCSC with a referendum that continues to enable us to provided our students a world-class education with numerous opportunities to prepare them for success in college and the workforce. We also thank you for helping us make safety a top priority!
