On March 3rd, all Juniors will be taking the ACT test. Scores will be sent home and delivered to the school near the end of the school year so be on the lookout for those. If you would like to sign your student up to take the ACT test again, go to www.act.org to do so. Badger High School will be hosting an ACT testing date again on June 13th, 2020. You'll need to register for this test through the ACT website in order to take the test on this date at Badger. There are other dates available at other locations, which can also be found on the ACT website.
Several scholarship deadlines have passed but there are still other scholarships available for Seniors to apply for. Senior students have been given instructions on how to access scholarships via the Badger High School website where information on each scholarship can be found, as well as the applications. For those Seniors planning to attend a UW school in the fall, check out some other scholarships at this link: https://uwhelp.wisconsin.edu/counselors/navigating-financial-aid/uw-system-scholarship-links/.
Sophomore Parent Night
On Wednesday, March 11th at 6pm during Parent/Teacher Conferences, the counselors will be holding an information session for parents of Sophomores. During this presentation, we will be going over information regarding Junior and Senior year, college planning, testing, and more. If you plan to attend, please come to the Recital Hall at 6pm.
Summer school registration has ended, however, if students need to make up English or Math, please have them come to the counseling center for information on how they can do that over the summer. Summer math is also available for those that want to gain more knowledge as they move into their next math class.
Now that many Seniors are making decisions on which school they will be attending in the Fall, each student would sign up for their individual college placement test. Students should contact their individual college to find out how to complete placement testing. To register for placement testing at any UW College, and for more information regarding UW College placement testing, please visit the following website:
If a work permit is needed, please see Mrs. Ingersoll in the counseling center. You will need $10 cash, your social security card, and a letter from the employer stating that you will be working there. If Mrs. Ingersoll is not available, you can get a work permit from city hall.
