A+ Schools Program
A Brief Explanation
What is A+?
It is a program that is available to FHS graduates because FHS is an “A+ School.”
- A+ is money from the Missouri government; the money comes from Missouri taxes.
- You do not have to have financial need - anyone can qualify.
- A+ pays for tuition (what you have to pay to attend a school).
- A+ pays for fees (like computer fees, health fees, recreation fees, charged by the school).
A+ does not pay for transportation, room and board, supplies, and optional books or program-related fees, such as tools.
