Dear Parents & Students,
We want to share some important information with you about a new program for our students – the A+ Schools Program. This program has been available to public school students since 1993 and just this year became available for private school students. The A+ Schools Program provides applicants who meet the A+ requirements free tuition and fees to any approved community college or post-secondary vocational or technical school as a full-time student. Many 4-year colleges and universities also offer scholarships or grants to students who have been certified as an A+ student.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our students, many of whom already qualify for this program. The main requirements include – a 2.5 cumulative grade point average, a 95% cumulative attendance record, a qualifying score (15-17) on the Math section of the ACT test, and a total of 50 hours of unpaid tutoring/mentoring over the four years of high school.
We want to encourage all students who can meet the A+ requirements before graduation to participate in this program. Students can only gain by participating in this program. Once students apply to the program, they can get started with their tutoring/mentoring hours and/or select a service site which will help meet this requirement.
If you have any questions about the program, please direct these to myself or Mr. Jim Campbell who will serve as our A+ Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Service to Christ,
Dr. Bridget Timoney
