University City: A Schools Program
The A+ Scholarship Program provides scholarship funds to eligible graduates of A+designated high schools who attend a participating public community college or vocational/technical school, or certain private two-year vocational/technical schools. Students are encouraged to enroll in the A+ Program during their freshman year. Enrolling in the program early allows students and parents to receive regular information on the A+ Program from the A+ Coordinator. Students may sign up at any time between grades nine and eleven. Seniors must enroll in the A+ program no later than January of their senior year due to the need to complete fifty required hours of tutoring/mentoring.
