Eligibility Requirements

A+ Program Requirements
Archie students wishing to enroll in the A+ program must meet several requirements:

New for the Class of 2015 and beyond:

Score Proficient or Advanced on the Algebra 1 End-of-Course Exam
Students must score Proficient or Advanced on the state level Algebra 1 End-of-Course Exam.

Sign a Written Agreement to Participate

Students may agree to participate at any time during their high school career. It is recommended and encouraged that students agree to participate as soon as possible to ensure they have adequate time to acquire their tutoring hours. Students must sign an A+ Program Participation Agreement.

Attend an A+ Designated School Three Consecutive Years
A student must attend an A+ designated school three consecutive years prior to graduation. Therefore a student must be enrolled in an A+ school their sophomore, junior, and senior years. If a student enrolls in the program at Archie and transfers to a different school, that school must be a designated A+ school in order for the student to be eligible for tuition benefits.

Earn a Cumulative, Unweighted 2.5 GPA
Archie High School students must graduate with a cumulative unweighted GPA of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale. There will be no rounding of the GPA. Thus a student with a GPA of 2.4999 will not meet the requirement. The official transcript will serve as documentation for the GPA requirement. This GPA is applicable to all four years of a student's enrollment in high school.

Maintain At Least a 95% Attendance Rate
Students are expected to maintain a 95% or better attendance rate over their four years of high school. Attendance rates will not be rounded; therefore a rate of 94.999% will not qualify the student for A+ benefits. Learn more about the Attendance Review Process.

Perform 50 Hours of Tutoring or Mentoring
Students must perform 50 hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring of younger students through a school-sponsored program. Tutoring must be completed under the supervision of an Archie teacher during the regular school year (before or after school) or during the summer school session.

Maintain a Record of Good Citizenship
Students must maintain a record of good citizenship and avoid the unlawful use of drugs and alcohol. Students must represent themselves in a positive manner both in and out of school. Any disciplinary actions taken by the school may affect the student's citizenship status. View the Code of Conduct Policy.

Complete a FAFSA
Students must make a good faith effort to secure all available federal post secondary student financial aid funds that do not require repayment. Financial need is not a requirement for A+ eligibility, but all students must complete the FAFSA form. Parents are encouraged to apply between January 1 and June 30 of their child's senior year.

Register with the Selective Service
Male students must register with the selective service upon turning 18 years old. Students should supply proof of registration to the A+ Coordinator within 30 days of registering.
