Congratulations Jordan Nichols!

September 15, 2017

We are so excited that we get to brag on Jordan Nichols, a Junior at SWHS.
Jordan is a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.
He is one of 16,000 Semifinalists in the US and will have the opportunity to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million.
Jordan earned this distinction by taking the PSAT/NMSQT at SWHS.
Last year Jordan was a member of the Walton County Academic Team that won the State Academic Championship. He is a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Seahawk Tennis Team.
We congratulate Jordan for this accomplishment and encourage all of our Seahawks to take the PSAT seriously when it is given at SWHS on October 11th. Maybe you can follow in Jordan’s footsteps!

Excerpt from The

The Seahawks, for the second straight year, have won the FHSAA Sunshine Cup All-Sports award, meaning they can officially call themselves the state’s best 1A athletic program.

The program was led by a state finalist girls’ basketball crew, a state semifinalist baseball team, a final four volleyball club and sweet 16 softball qualifier.

“It’s definitely something we talk about, just like our academic state championship,” Tisa said. “It’s something we strive for. Every year we continue to push for excellence.”

Controlled Open Enrollment as required by law allows a parent from any district in Florida to enroll and transport his or her student to any public school that has not reached capacity.  Certain students, such as dependents of active duty military whose move resulted from military orders, or student relocated due to foster care placement, receive priority for seat assignments within a school.  Parents must submit applications for enrollment for a school outside their student's transportation zone.  (See COntrolled Open Enrollment Policy at
