UTA Summer Prep Camp

UTA is once again hosting a FREE overnight summer program for this year's juniors to help them bridge the gap between high school and college.  We will cover the entire college search process, boosting your applications, and paying for higher education, as well as host some fun summer activities.  The content covered is for all colleges and universities, not just UTA.  There are four date options:

June 8-9 or July 6-7 

Students must apply (250-500 word essay) to attend and the deadline is May 1, 2017.  For more information go to http://www.uta./admissions/boundforsuccess/precamp/

 

Personal Graduation Plan Meetings for 9th Grade Students
 
This year counselors are required to meet with you and your student to discuss his/her personal graduation plan and endorsement for high school. These meetings will be held throughout the school year.  All students entering 9th grade during the 2016-2017 school year must declare an endorsement or academic concentration for graduation. Parents should leave the meeting with a wealth of information concerning the student's career pathway and course selections for high school.  The meeting should last approximately 20-30 minutes. Please contact your student's counselor to set up a day/time to meet.
 

What courses should my student take?  AP, IB, Dual Credit?

Making this decision can be difficult and confusing.  In order to make the best informed decision see your student's counselor for more information about all of these program options.
