College Bound Students
To improve your chances of receiving a scholarship, begin the process early; keep your GPA high; and fill out applications completely, accurately, and early enough to meet scholarship deadlines. Scholarship information is available in the counseling office.
This will be an organized workshop to guide students through what they need to do to apply for scholarships and aid them in the process.
The College Tour
The Counseling and Guidance Department will host a College Tour in the fall. Most of Utah’s colleges and universities take this opportunity to meet with students and share information about admissions and scholarships. All senior students are invited to attend this informative activity. This is an opportunity to ask very specific questions you might have about processes and deadlines. All senior students are invited and encouraged to attend this unique chance to learn more about post-high school educational opportunities.
Financial Aid Night
Usually in December a representative from a local university comes and explains to junior and senior students and their parents the financial aid options and programs available. This presentation has been extremely valuable in helping and assisting students and parents in identifying and pursuing grants, loans, and college scholarships. A note is sent to all junior and senior students and their parents telling them of the exact date of this presentation.
Concurrent College Enrollment
Junior and senior students with a 3.25+ GPA (plus 17 or above on the ACT for English) may participate in the concurrent enrollment program. Concurrent enrollment allows a student to earn college credit while attending high school. Three college semester credits count as one high school credit. Students interested in the concurrent enrollment program should arrange to meet with the program coordinator Mrs. Vickie Christian.
Advanced Placement and Enrichment
Advanced courses and activities for enrichment are available in nearly every department. Students seeking an accelerated program may also choose to take AP courses or on-campus concurrent credit courses. With a qualifying score on the AP test, a student can be awarded college credit. A fee is required to take the test.
College Athletics Requirements
Students must meet athletic academic requirements (NCAA, etc.) to participate
in college athletics. Students must have a minimum score of 17 on the
ACT. Check with the College Athletic Advisor and your counselor for more
detailed information. You should register with the NCAA Clearinghouse
at the beginning of your senior year. Students should also have their
ACT scores sent to the NCAA Clearinghouse by adding the correct code to
the ACT application.
