Seneca Valley to Open Larger School to Alleviate Overcrowding

Seneca Valley High School is opening a larger school in the 2020-2021 school year to alleviate overcrowding at Clarksburg and Northwest high schools.

The new state of the art high school will ensure that all 2,600+ students have access to courses and programs that provide the academic knowledge to be prepared for college, but also the skills and experiences to gain a competitive edge in today’s economy.

Officials say all of the programs currently at Seneca Valley will remain. Additionally, several new high-demand programs have been planned as part of the new facility. New programs include the addition of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (subject to authorization), Cyber Security, Construction and Architecture, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Law Enforcement, and more.

Here’s a list of the new application career readiness programs:

IB and Montgomery College

Local/Part-time Career Readiness Programs

Other Programs

The Board of Education will decide about boundaries in late November 2019. Due to the overlapping timeline, all students interested in Seneca Valley’s application-based programs should apply by Nov. 1, regardless of whether they are in or out of the school’s current boundaries.
