Attention Seniors!

The application for the HUHS Scholarship Foundation for 2020 is now open! HUHS Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is a charitable foundation organized by local citizens and business people and administered by Legacy Private Trust Company. The income of the fund is used for scholarships and financial aid to assist deserving graduates of Hartford Union High School in their post-high school education. The application for the almost 50 available scholarships is open until February 21, 2020.
To apply, please visit the HUHS website, and click on “Academics/Scholarship/HUHS Scholarship Foundation.” There you will find the list of available scholarships, a step-by-step application process, and answers to Frequently Asked Questions. If you still have further questions, you can send an email to  scholarships@huhs.org .
Do you have an interest in government and citizenship? Are you someone who displays outstanding qualities of leadership, good moral character, cooperativeness, dependability, and participation in co-curricular activities?

If so, you may be interested in participating in either the Badger Girls State Program or the Badger Boys State Program. It’s an exciting week of meeting new students from around the state, staying on a college campus and experiencing dorm life. It’s a sponsored event, so there is no cost to the participants.

Requirements:
  • Be in the top half of your class
  • Be a US Citizen
  • Be able to participate in the entire week of activities

If you would like more information about the programs, please go to either:

www.badgerboysstate.com               or             www.badgergirlsstate.org

The Girls State Program is the week of June 21-26, 2020 on the UW-Oshkosh campus. The Boys State Program is the week of June 13-20, 2020 on the Ripon College campus. You must be able to attend the entire session so please check your calendar for availability.

If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, you must submit a short statement (200 words or less) to the Student Services Office by Friday, February 14. The statement should be typed and answer the following question: How will attending Badger State help me to make a difference in my community? Please include a list of co-curricular activities and any leadership positions held.
Events
On Monday, certified respiratory therapist Jenni Muckleroy visited the Ms. Schadrie and Ms. Strupp’s animal science classes to talk about the importance of the respiratory system in the maintenance of good health, as a part of their unit on animal body systems and homeostasis. Students were able to hear stories about common respiratory issues, learn a little bit about how vaping affects the alveoli in the lungs and ask questions about the system. They also learned about common therapeutic techniques used to alleviate respiratory distress.
Student Services
Useful tool for college bound students: College Scorecard has info about costs, ACT score requirements, grad rates, % of students who come back for their 2nd year, % who graduate and final debt. Good tool to use for any school as you can use it for any state and public or private college (tech colleges too)! https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/

ACT Testing
All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year. Students can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org . When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.  Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.  The test fee for the ACT is $52.00 and the ACT with Writing is $68.00.  If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child’s counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver. 

HUHS is an ACT test center for most testing dates. The test dates for the 2019-20 school year are:

                                                February 8, 2020 (NOT at HUHS)            
April 4, 2020                                  June 13, 2020                                July 18, 2020

Note:  Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on March 3 (no cost to the student on March 3).   When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 8 or April 4 ACT, it may be best for students to take the March 3 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon March results.

What is the status of my application?

This is a common question that we hear this time of year at the UW HELP office. Unfortunately, we are not able to see the status of an applicant's application. Two things that we can check for them are (1) whether or not the online application was submitted and (2) whether or not the application fee was paid. Since this is a frequently asked question we did work with our campuses to create a chart so students can have a better idea as to when they can anticipate hearing back from one of our 26 campuses - once all materials are received. This chart includes the date in which campuses will start reviewing a completed application and approximately how long that review process will take.  View Timeline
