Carter Oleckna wants to be a marine biologist when he grows up.

In order to follow his dreams, he would need to go to college. And the new Imagine Honors Academy could help him get there.

“Looks good on my record,” said Carter, who is in ninth grade.

So he applied for admission by filling out a form, gathering written recommendations from three teachers and writing an essay.

In all, about 75 students applied by the April 8 deadline. Those accepted will be notified in mid-May.

A teacher task force came up with the idea of an academy to motivate high-achieving students to stay at Imagine. Members will graduate with an Honors Diploma.

Academy students will take honors and Advanced Placement classes, go on field trips, undertake service projects and earn community service hours.

Freshman Carter Oleckna hopes to get accepted to the new Imagine Honors Academy.
