I was on the waitlist in 2020. Am I eligible to sign up?

2021-03-30T17:31:28-05:00March 30, 2021|

At this time, we are only extending invitations to those who were registered in a guaranteed space in the 2020 program due to the lower enrollment capacity we are following for 2021. If spaces are still available after those who had a space in 2020 have had an opportunity to register for 2021 (highly unlikely), we will contact those who were on the waitlist in 2020. We kindly request no inquiries as to whether space is available: we will contact you if this becomes possible.

Are all Scholars considered “returning Scholars?” Does 2020 count toward a year of attendance and will it affect Manners to Morals or Perspectives course assignments?

2021-03-30T17:31:49-05:00March 28, 2021|

By definition: Returning Scholars – have attended DECATS before New Scholars – have not attended DECATS before Summer 2020 did not count as a year of attendance. Assignments in Manners to Morals will still be performed by grade level, and assignments in Perspectives will still be done by years of completed attendance (not including 2020).

Will any new Scholars be nominated?

2021-03-30T17:31:39-05:00March 28, 2021|

We are not accepting any new nominations this year, including younger siblings of current participants. Schools have largely not been able to conduct the typical standardized testing normally used to qualify eligible students.

Who is eligible to sign up for 2021?

2021-03-30T17:31:16-05:00March 28, 2021|

Only participants who were registered in a guaranteed space in the 2020 program, including – as a one-time exception for 2021 only – those who are now in seventh grade.
