A Plus Program: In an effort to enhance educational opportunities for high school students, the Missouri Legislature established the A+ Schools Program as part of the Outstanding Schools Act (Senate Bill 380) of 1993. Graduates who qualify may be eligible to receive financial assistance with tuition and fees to any public community college, vocational, or technical school in the state of Missouri, contingent upon continued funding by the Missouri Legislature. Students should see their counselor for more information. Students can start the A+ application and begin meeting requirements at any point from Freshman year to Senior year. Students must meet the requirements by graduation. Work with your high school counselor to start your process. Please click HERE for SLPS A+ Scholarship Application.
