Memphis Community Schools and SC4 Collaborate to Encourage Post High School Education

Memphis Community Schools and SC4 are working together to eliminate a step to enroll at SC4. High School seniors will automatically be admitted to SC4 without needing to complete a college application. Eliminating the application step for high school graduates streamlines the transition from high school to college, including encouraging early access to scholarships, advising, and college services.

Beginning with the high school graduating class of 2024, student data from Memphis Community Schools will be entered into the SC4 data system to permit students to activate an SC4 account and immediately begin enrollment steps for the Fall 2024 college semester.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with SC4, which will pave the way for our students to access higher education seamlessly,” said Memphis Community Schools Superintendent Sara Dobbelaer. “This collaboration not only offers immediate access with SC4 but also establishes a clear pathway to college for Memphis students. The tremendous benefits that this opportunity will bring to our students cannot be overstated. Memphis Community Schools is proud to join forces with SC4 in providing this opportunity.”

Kirk Kramer, President of SC4, also commented, “SC4 and Memphis Community Schools have collaborated to create a seamless path for all students to have access to higher education. Every student is deserving of the chance to succeed and the commitment of Memphis Community Schools and SC4 is a positive example of public education working together for families and students.”

A letter of introduction and explanation of benefits will be sent to graduates in early May, with a follow-up letter on how to activate the SC4 account in the middle of May. Students interested in enrolling at SC4 may contact enrollment@sc4.edu.

The program of automatic admission to SC4 is at no cost to students or the school. Students are not required to enroll. The program includes all students graduating from Memphis Community Schools.
