East High Services
The A+ program offers students a financial incentive to maintain good grades, attendance, and citizenship. Students must have at least 95% attendance, 2.5 GPA, and50 hours of community service cumulatively over their four years of high school. Students who qualify can earn scholarship money towards any two-year community college or technical/vocational school. Some four-year universities will also honor A+, which will cover some of the students' college tuition. If you are interested, please see Mrs. Marentes in room 136 (College and Career Center).
The Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC) helps students find a "best-fit" postsecondary opportunity by placing intensively trained full-time "near-peer" college advisory in high schools across Missouri to help students and their families navigate the college application and financing processes. MCAC partners with urban and rural schools with high proportions of first-generation-to-college, low-income, and underrepresented students at risk of not going to college. Our college advisor is Ms. Brittney McGinley in room 136.
