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.
  • 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.

What type of Schools will A+ pay for me to attend?

Located in Missouri;

  • Public (funded with Missouri tax money);
  • 2-year community colleges, technical colleges, or vocational/technical schools.

A+ does not pay for 4-year school or schools out of state or private schools. However, many 4 year schools offer a scholarship for completeing the A+ requirements. 


How do I get the money? *

You do not have to have financial need (anyone can qualify).

  • You do not have to earn A+ grades.
  • You do not have to compete with anyone.


  Basically, you just have to:

Sign up;

  • Get an average of C+’s when all your semester grades are averaged together. (2.5 GPA);
  • Have an attendance rate of 95%;
  • Attend an A+ school for your last three years before graduation;
  • Stay out of trouble;
  • Do 50 hours of tutoring;
  • Beginning with the class of 2015, students must score proficient or advanced on the Algebra I End of Course Exam ( this requirement may be waived after completing one semester of post-secondary education with a 2.5 GPA or better)*.

   *Please ask for a complete explanation from the A+ Schools Program Coordinator or refer to the MDHE website.
