About the Program
The A+ Program was established in 1993 as part of the Outstanding Schools Act by the Missouri State Legislature to enhance educational opportunities for high school students. According to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the primary goal of the A+ Schools Program is to ensure that all students who graduate from Missouri high schools are well-prepared to pursue advanced education and employment. Archie's A+ goals are:
  • All Archie students will graduate from high school
  • All students will complete a selection of high school studies that are challenging and for which there are identified learning experiences
  • Archie High School students will proceed from high school to a college, post-secondary vocational or technical school, or a high-wage job with workplace skill development opportunities

Archie High School applied for A+ designation in the spring of 2006. The class of 2009 was the first eligible class to have the opportunity to qualify for free college tuition pending the continuation of program support from the state legislature.

Archie High School graduates who meet specific A+ criteria will be eligible to receive reimbursement for tuition and general fees to attend any public community college or vocational or technical school in the state of Missouri for two years (up to six semesters).
