Glendale High School A+ Schools Program
DO YOU HAVE GOOD GRADES (2.5 non-weighted GPA or higher)? DO YOU COME TO SCHOOL REGULARLY (95% attendance or better)? DO YOU WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE AND HAVE HELP PAYING THE BILL? Achieving A+ eligibility means that you may be eligible for paid tuition and general fees toward your first associate degree at any public community college or technical school in the state of Missouri (provided state funds are appropriated by the legislature and annual funding is approved). The money is available for student use within the 4-year period immediately after high school graduation. The A+ Program is for everyone! You can: * attend a 1- or 2-year community college or technical school and get a degree that will prepare you for a high-wage, high-skill job in over 150 career areas. Starting wages for these types of jobs usually range from $9-$25/hour. * get an Associate of Arts degree at a community college that will allow you to transfer to a 4-year college as a junior. Most four-year universities work with A+ students in the transfer and scholarship process. * obtain incentive scholarships at participating four-year colleges. Truman State University, Columbia College, Webster University, William Woods University, SMSU--West Plains, MO Western, NW Missouri State, and Lincoln University are a few who offer A+ competitive scholarships and/or dual enrollment with area technical centers and community colleges. Contact the university directly for details on how A+ eligibility can help. TO QUALIFY, STUDENTS SIMPLY MEET EACH OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA: * sign an A+ Schools Agreement, A+ Citizenship Guideline, and A+ Attendance Policy * attend an A+ designated School for the last three consecutive years prior to graduation. * keep a 4-year cumulative attendance record of 95% or better. * keep a 4-year cumulative, non-weighted GPA of 2.5 or higher. * complete 50 hours of unpaid, academic tutoring. Tutor hours may be logged only after the student has completed training and ONLY when prior arrangements have been made and permission obtained from Mrs. Maslowsky, A+ Coordinator. * maintain good citizenship and avoid the use of alcohol and/or drugs. Referrals, tardies, in-school, and out-of-school suspensions may have an impact on your eligibility. * file the FAFSA early in the last semester of your senior year. * show proof of registration, if required to register, under the U.S. Military Selective Service Act. * Beginning with the senior Class of 2015, A+ qualifiers must have achieved a score of proficient or advanced on the Algebra I end of course exam. If the student doesn't meet this criteria (but meets all others), A+ eligibility will be determined by current MDHE guidelines. *A+ is a state-funded program. Money available to students is dependent on state fund allocations which may change from year to year. POSTGRADUATE RESPONSIBILITIES: If a student is a non-citizen, it is up to the post-secondary institution to determine whether or not they are eligible for the incentives for the A+ program. To retain A+ incentives in college, the student must attend college on a full-time basis, maintain a college GPA of 2.5 or higher, and re-apply for the FAFSA during subsequent semesters.
