--Student Opportunities and Scholarships

SCHOLARSHIPS:

Stop by during class change or before/after school at the counselors office for additional scholarship information and applications.

STUDENT INDIVIDUAL LEARNING PLANS (ILP)
The ILP is an online tool which provides a myriad of resources to assist students in planning their academic and career pathways.  It is interactive and allows students to input their interests, activities, honors, and other experiences to help develop resumes, explore career fields, search post-secondary education opportunities and more.

The ILP is found at:  https://www.careercruising.com/ilp 

Parents are encouraged to regularly explore their child's ILP, preferably, but not necessarily with their child, and to engage in regular conversations about the content and their child's plans for the future.

To access your child's ILP, parents may ask their student to share their user name and password, or parents may also seek this information from the guidance office.

For additional information regarding Senior opportunities, contact Nicole Davis in the guidance office. 
KEES $ (Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship)

The KEES program provides scholarships to students who earn at least a 2.5 GPA each year they attend a certified Kentucky high school.  The better they do in high school, the more they earn toward college.  They may also earn awards for ACT/SAT scores and Advanced Placement (AP) scores.

Students may check their KEES awards at anytime by logging into Zip Access at www.kheaa.com.  First-time visitors to Zip Access must create a user ID and password by clicking on the “register now” link.  If there is no record or incorrect data is found, students should notify their school counselor.

KHEAA updates student accounts each year as information as information is received from high schools.

Here are some important KEES facts of which students should be aware:  

· AP and IB courses are weighted for KEES purposes, meaning an “A” in those classes is worth 25 percent more than other courses.  Honors courses are not weighted.
 
· KEES awards are not final and available for use until after the student graduates from high school.

· The highest ACT composite or SAT (critical reading and math) score received from national tests taken before graduation will be used to determine the KEES bonus award.

· Once students are in college, half of the annual KEES award will be sent after classes begin each fall and spring semester.  To get the full award, students must be enrolled full-time.  To keep the full scholarship, students must earn a 2.5 cumulative GPA the first year in college and a 3.0 cumulative GPA afterwards.  If students have a cumulative GPA less than 3.0 after their second year in college, the award renewal amount will be based on additional requirements, including enrollment status and progress toward meeting the college’s graduation requirements.
