Welcome to Montana College Application Week!
November 11-15, 2013
What? High school seniors will have an opportunity to apply to college during the school day with many 2-year and 4-year colleges in Montana waiving their application fee during this week. Special focus is placed on assisting students who will be the first in their families to attend college and those who may not otherwise seriously consider applying to college.Why? Montana needs more college graduates. Did you know in 2010 only 61% of Montana high school graduates enrolled in college in the fall semester immediately following graduation, and fewer than 50% of Montana’s high school graduates enrolled in the Montana University System? The majority of jobs require at least some postsecondary education. We want all Montana students to succeed in the 21st Century. An essential step in getting more college graduates is getting more Montana high school seniors to apply to college
JUNIORS please consider taking the SAT or ACT this summer or early fall. All incoming seniors interested in applying for scholarships and colleges or universities should take either the SAT or ACT before December 2013. Visit the website for either to find out test dates and registration information.
JUNIORS The state of Montana will be paying for every Junior in the state to take the ACT test in April It will only be the second time it is ever offered on site at our school for our students to take free of charge!
ASVAB Test will be given to the Juniors each fall. Seniors that have not taken the ASVAB can take the test as well if they sign up with Mr. Kohn in advance.
Attention seniors that want to go to college: Try to make a goal of applying for one scholarship per week. The more scholarships that you apply for, the better your odds of getting more money for college.
