SENIORS with an ACT score of 21 or higher can earn the Half Tuition scholarship called the Governor’s Advantage award; Seniors who have ACT score of 25 or higher can earn the Board of Trustee’s full tuition scholarship–see Mrs Kudrna if interested! Let your parents know! Early Deadlines apply! Application includes a “personal statement” section.

Attendance is the number one predictor of success in school.
**93% of freshman who miss less than a week of school over the course of a year, graduate on time, in four years**

Transfer Nebraska is a website that offers students a way to easily see if (and where) their dual credit courses will transfer—and better plan and prepare for their academic future.

Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to see Mrs Kudrna once a week to discuss educational and occupational plans. Parent involvement is critical at this transition time.

Class registration for the next academic year:
HAL students who will be Juniors or Seniors will have the option of taking a period of online courses through PEAK/FuelEd Learning. Have your HAL student see Mrs Kudrna to choose a course title for high school credit! (See the Drop and Add guidelines link at bottom of this page)
