Other Academic Information

College Prep Hours

Students in high school must complete an average of 12 hours per year of college preparation. These include, but are not limited to college visits, ACT/SAT preparation and test taking, college lunch meetings, PSAT, You Science Test, etc. These hours do not apply prior to fall 2017.

College Lunches

These are held monthly and open to all secondary students and parents.  We go through the College Counseling Sourcebook.  College reps are also brought in for presentations.

ACT Prep Classes

These can be done on-line or on campus with our seminars

College Credit in HS

This is accomplished through the use of the CLEP tests, taking courses online or in the local community college then transferring the credit onto the WPA transcript.
