Governor Jay Nixon congratulated Scott City High School students and staff on being recognized as an A+ High School at an assembly held on April 30th. He recognized the district for its continued academic excellence and announced significant progress toward his goal of giving every student in Missouri the opportunity to earn an A+ Scholarship.
Under the A+ program, Missouri students can earn a scholarship to cover the cost of tuition and academic fees for two years at any public two-year community college or technical school in the state. To be eligible for the program, students must meet academic achievement standards, conduct and attendance requirements, and perform 50 hours of tutoring or mentoring service.
Scott City High School needs your help to secure funding for a grant for the high school math department. We need you to get out in your communities and ask your local farmers to nominate Scott City High School for the opportunity to compete for a $25,000 grant through Monsanto Fund's America's Farmers Grow Rural Education.
Scott City is currently a test site for the ACT, and is open for registrations for the next testing date. You can now sign up for the September 8th ACT test, with the registration deadline being August 17th. If you wish to take the ACT at Scott City, please sign up immediately.
