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 .
Events
Slinger High School is hosting a presentation for parents on Social Media Awareness and Cyber Safety. It is open to the public and has graciously invited HUHS parents to attend.
This week our Creative Writing Classes are tackling Found Poetry and Visual Poetry. Students are challenged to make meaning through words and phrases from the world around them. Students stacked books, used magnetic words, and blackout words on a page to create their own pieces of poetry.
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
