MSC (housed at Churchill High School):

The Livonia Public Schools Math/Science/Computer Program (MSC), located at Churchill High School, is a four year program. The MSC Program has the purpose of providing a 9th-12th grade math/science/computer science concentration to students who have a high level of achievement and interest in the areas of math and science. Thirty students are selected for the incoming 9th grade class. Students must have completed Algebra 1 by the end of 8th grade in order to apply for MSC for 9th grade. Applications are normally only accepted for the incoming 9th grade class.

The curriculum is specifically designed for students who have an intense interest in math and science. The courses are taught at a faster pace and in greater depth. The Advanced Placement (AP) Program gives students the opportunity to pursue college-level studies and receive advanced placement and/or course credit upon entering college. In the MSC program, AP courses are required in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics, and Statistics. Students in the MSC program take their MSC courses as a prescribed curriculum and select their remaining courses from the regular Churchill High School course offerings. All MSC students are full time students at Churchill High School.

Eighth grade students who will have completed Algebra 1 by June 2019 are eligible to apply for the MSC Program for 9th grade. MSC students become full-time Churchill High School students. For students who live in the FHS or SHS attendance area, transportation to CHS for MSC students is provided by the school district from the student’s home high school (FHS or SHS). Parents of LPS students who fit the eligibility guideline above will be notified in late October 2018 of the opportunity for the student to apply to the MSC Program for fall 2019.

The MSC Program is open only to students who live in the Livonia Public Schools School District and to students who already attend LPS schools. Due
