Please see the following message from Counselor Casey Burton (firstname.lastname@example.org) about applying for ASCENT:A
-Will you have 12 or more college credits by the time you graduate in May?
-Do you have a 2.75 GPA or higher?
-Are you considered college ready as determined by the SAT, Accuplacer or prior college classes?
If you can answer yes to all 3 of these questions, then you should definitely consider applying for the ASCENT program.
ASCENT is an extra year of Tuition Free College classes similar to concurrent enrollment (it is not a 5th year of high school).
To apply, please see the attached worksheet that will help you compile all of the information needed to complete the online application which can be found here:
The deadline to submit your application is February 28th.
You will have to complete the application all in one sitting so please do not apply until you have all required information including a letter of recommendation and an essay ready to upload.
I will be available to help you with this application once we return from Winter Break as I am booked with spring college registration for the time being.
On that note, if you have yet to meet with me to register for College classes this spring you need to contact me asap to schedule a meeting. The deadline to complete Spring registration is December 6th which sounds far off but with a week off for Thanksgiving it’s actually only two school weeks away.
