Idaho wants to open doors for you. Thanks to educational sponsorship, the SAT — the most widely used college entrance exam — is being given for free to all public school Idaho juniors as part of the Idaho SAT School Day initiative. Even better, juniors have the opportunity to take the SAT during the regular school day at their own high school. The Idaho SAT School Day test date is Wednesday, April 16, 2013.

TRiO Educational Specialist meet with students to review their grades on their transcript. A student’s cumulative (Cum.) GPA begins with their semester grade from classes starting in 9th grade. The Cumulative GPA is an average of all the semester grades a student earns from 9th -12th grade. When a student applies for admission to a college, the college will require that the student also send a transcript.
Additionally, some scholarship applications also require a student to send their transcript. The highest GPA a student can earn is usually a 4.0, which amounts to A’s in every class throughout their high school years. While it is important to get good grades, students must also challenge themselves and take rigorous college preparatory classes to be ready for college and the college admissions tests. For more information about your transcript and GPA visit with your TRiO Educational Specialist.
